House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the Louisiana Republican shot at a congressional baseball practice three weeks ago, underwent surgery to manage growing infection in his wounds, his doctors said Thursday.

Scalice’s medical team at MedStar Washington Hospital Center had downgraded his status from “fair” to “serious” on Wednesday night after the infection was discovered. He was readmitted into the Intensive Care Unit for close monitoring.

Scalise “tolerated the procedure well,” his medical team said Thursday evening, adding that he “remains in serious condition.”

During a press conference several days after the shooting, Scalise’s medical team said they expected the congressman would be confronted with such infection at some point during his recovery.
