The 39-year-old Abram was treated at a Memphis hospital after he was shot by police and arrested July 30 at a Walmart in Southaven, Mississippi.
Authorities say Abram had been suspended from his job before he shot two co-workers and a police officer. The employees died. The officer was wearing a bulletproof vest and survived.
Several court hearings for Abram have been delayed because of his hospitalization.
Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has signed an extradition warrant.
