Rep. Steve Scalise back in intensive care unit

(CNN)Rep. Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the intensive care unit “due to new concerns for infection,” a statement from his office said.

His condition is listed as serious, according to the statement.
Scalise, the Republican House majority whip who represents Louisiana, was critically injured when agunman, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, opened fire on the GOP baseball team as they were practicing for a charity game on June 14.
    Hodgkinson, a small business owner in Illinois, had been vocal about his support for Bernie Sanders — and his hatred for conservatives. He died following a shootout with authorities.
    Scalise sustained a single gunshot wound to his left hip and suffered “significant damage” to his blood vessels, bones and some internal organs, his doctor said last month.
    The congressman’s condition subsequently improved, and he was released from the MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s intensive care unit less than two weeks ago.
    Another update on Scalise is expected Thursday, according to his office.
    Following the news of his return to the ICU, many tweeted well wishes using the hashtag #PrayForScalise.

    Who was injured?

    Four people, including Scalise, were shot and two others were injured.
    Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and former congressional aide, was shot. His condition improved and he was discharged from the hospital on June 23.
