Former Michigan Legislature aide among Virginia shooting victims

A Tyson worker was hurt at Tuesday's congressional ball practice shooting in Virginia, the company confirmed.

A Tyson Foods lobbyist is among the five people shot at a GOP congressional baseball practice early Wednesday, according to a report.

According to his family, Mika suffered multiple gunshot wounds and came out of surgery Wednesday in critical condition in the ICU.

DETROIT (AP) - A MI congressman who worked with a man critically wounded when a gunman attacked a Republican baseball practice outside Washington said Thursday that his former aide is driven, passionate about agricultural issues and "starting to show his feistiness again". "We're deeply concerned about him and his family".

Tyson Foods confirmed that Mika, director of government relations in the company's Washington, D.C., office, was injured and taken to a local hospital.

Mika, a former congressional aide, is being treated at George Washington University Hospital, the Washington Post reported.

The family said, "he is lucky to be alive" and credited the care he has received and "Matt's fighting spirit and grit".

Scalise is recovering from emergency surgery after being shot in the hip. Walberg says Mika was helping the Republican team prepare for a game against the Democrats.

As the two got to know each other more, Mika's love for sports - especially Detroit teams - became pretty obvious. He's an Oakland County native and graduate of Adrian College.

Three Michigan congressman, including Bishop, were all present at the baseball practice when the shooting erupted.

"He's not a big guy but he has such a big heart and a big personality", Walberg said.
