WASHINGTON - House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is improving after being shot in Alexandria and is now listed in fair condition, MedStar Washington Hospital Center announced.
In a statement, the hospital said Scalise “continues to make good progress. He is now listed in fair condition and is beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation.”
Scalise and other congressional Republicans were practicing on June 14 for their annual charity baseball game when officials said 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson opened fire.
Scalise, Congressional aide Zachary Barth, former staffer and current Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika and U.S. Capitol Police Special Agent Crystal Griner were wounded during the shooting.
On Wednesday, the FBI said its investigation had determined Hodgkinson acted alone and terrorism was not involved in the shooting.
