Congressman Scalise To Undergo Surgery Wednesday Related To June Shooting
Majority Whip Congressman Steve Scalise is undergoing surgery Wednesday related to injuries he sustained last June when a gunman opened fire on several legislators practicing for a charity softball game near Washington. He returned to the House floor three and a half months following the shooting which stuck several internal organs. LSU Health Level One Trauma Center’s Medical Director Dr. John Hunt says it’s common for shooting victims with serious injuries to undergo another surgery.
"It could be he has some kind of reconstructive surgery that is being planned or he some ongoing wound problem that needs to be cleaned up."
