He requires assistance to breathe and will need additional surgeries.

According to his LinkedIn page he has been in that position for six years.

Scalise, a member of the House Republican leadership as the majority whip, appeared to have been shot in the hip. "We're deeply concerned about him and his family".

Matt Mika, director of government relations in the meat processor's Washington office, was shot when a gunman fired upon a group of congressmen practicing for an upcoming charity-benefit baseball game.

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

His family released a statement following the shooting, and they are now traveling to Washington, D.C. The statement said that paramedics told them he was shot multiple times and is undergoing surgery.


His family has said baseball is Mika's passion.

A MI native has been identified as one of several people were shot and seriously injured when a gunman opened fire at a baseball practice involving Republican politicians in Alexandria, Virginia. During his time as a staffer, he served as a legislative aide for Congressman Tim Walberg and as a legislative assistant to now-retired Michigan Congressman Dave Camp.

As the two got to know each other more, Mika's love for sports - especially Detroit teams - became pretty obvious. Our family continues to be in shock and we ask for privacy while we focus on Matt and his care.

He is a 2001 graduate of Adrian College and earned a Master's Degree in 2004 from Western Michigan University.

President Trump said Wednesday in a press briefing that the alleged shooter, identified in multiple reports as James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., has died.
