GOP Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise underwent surgery Thursday in order to treat an infection, as the majority whip continues to suffer complications from a gunshot wound sustained over three weeks ago during a GOP baseball practice. 

“Congressman Steve Scalise underwent surgery for the management of infection. He tolerated the procedure well. He remains in serious condition,” MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement.

The surgery comes a day after the Scalise was readmitted to the intensive care unit due to the infection. Doctors downgraded his condition from “fair” to “serious” Wednesday. (RELATED: How It Happened: The Baseball Shooting, According To The Congressmen Who Were There)

MedStar announced they would provide updates on Scalise’s condition as appropriate.
