WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on Rep. Steve Scalise's surgery (all times local):

5:20 p.m.

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise has undergone a follow-up surgery 10 months after being shot at a Republican baseball practice.

Medstar Washington Hospital Center and Scalise's office said Monday that he has begun "a series of planned, inpatient procedures." They say he's in "excellent spirits" and expected to remain hospitalized for several days.

Scalise is considered a potential contender to succeed House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said he won't seek re-election. Scalise is the third-ranking House GOP leader.

Scalise told colleagues earlier Monday that he will return to the Capitol when doctors say he can.

Four other people were also wounded in the shooting last June. Capitol police and other officers killed the gunman, who had nursed grievances against President Donald Trump and the GOP.

2:55 p.m.

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is undergoing a planned follow-up surgery 10 months after he was badly wounded by a gunman who fired at a Republican baseball practice.

The surgery was scheduled for Monday at a Washington hospital.

The 52-year-old Scalise told colleagues that he'll return to the Capitol "as soon as my doctors say I'm able."

A person familiar with Scalise's treatments says the congressman is expected to miss a few days. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Doctors who treated Scalise after the June 2017 shooting say he nearly died. A gunshot to his hip shattered bone and damaged internal organs. He still uses crutches and an electric scooter.

Scalise is the No. 3 House GOP leader.
