Rep. Steve Scalise Is Out Of The ICU After Baseball Field Shooting

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise has been transferred out of the ICU and is in fair condition.

According to a release from MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Scalise was transferred out of the ICU on Thursday. He has been in fair condition since Wednesday.

That good news comes just nine days after Scalise and three others were shot at a Republican congressional baseball practice in northern Virginia.

Scalise underwent several surgeries after a single rifle shot to his hip caused injuries to internal organs. 

Lobbyist Matt Mika, who was shot in the chest, has also been transferred out of the ICU and is in good condition, according to local media outlets. He was even visited at the hospital by Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth.

A member of Scalise's security detail, Special Agent Crystal Griner, was shot in the ankle. She was released from the hospital last week. 

Griner threw out the first pitch at the Congressional Women's Softball Game on Wednesday. 

Another member of Scalise's security detail, Special Agent David Bailey, was injured during the shooting. He was released the same day and threw out the first pitch at last week's Congressional Baseball Game.

Congressional staffer Zack Barth, who was shot in the leg, was released from the hospital the same day. 

Earlier this week, lawmakers gave blood in honor of Scalise and the other victims of the shooting.
