Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise has moved into "intensive inpatient rehabilitation" as he continues to recover from injuries suffered in a shooting of a charity baseball game practice.
A statement from his office Wednesday read:
Congressman Steve Scalise has made excellent progress in his recovery from a life-threatening gunshot wound six weeks ago. Yesterday, he was discharged from MedStar Washington Hospital Center and is now beginning a period of intensive inpatient rehabilitation.
