U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the hospital due to new concerns about infection, according to a statement from MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

The one line statement was released at 10 p.m. Wednesday. Scalise was injured when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

Scalise, 51, was struck in the hip and the bullet shattered blood vessels, bones and internal organs along the way. Doctors said he had arrived at the hospital after the shooting at imminent risk of death.

An update from Scalise’s Twitter account said his condition is listed as serious. Another update was expected on Thursday.
