GOP Shooting Victim Out of ICU; Nationals Player Visits

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is now listed in fair condition and continues to make good progress

The congressman who was shot and wounded at a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, last week has been moved out of an intensive care unit, hospital officials say. 

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is now listed in fair condition and continues to make progress.

Lobbyist Matt Mika has been released from the hospital Friday, according to his family. He was upgraded to good condition earlier in the day.

Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth paid Mika a visit on Thursday. A photo shows Mika smiling and holding up a Werth jersey, with Werth at his hospital bed.

U2 lead singer Bono met with members of Scalise's staff Wednesday and signed a card wishing the congressman a speedy recovery.

Mika is expected to make a full recovery, his family said in a statement last week. Mika is a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and had previously served as an aide to U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Michigan.
