His family released a statement saying that Mika had been shot multiple times and is in critical condition. His family said he is expected to stay in the hospital for several days. "We're deeply concerned about him and his family".

Matt Mika was identified by Tyson Foods as a victim of the shooting in Alexandria.

"He loved to campaign".

Mika previously worked on Capitol Hill for two MI congressmen, former Rep. Dave Camp of Midland and Rep. Tim Walberg of Tipton.

Walberg noted that Mika was a "wonderful asset" to the GOP baseball team, waking up early in the morning to help out "when he didn't have to".

"He was very active with the one of the softball teams that we had, some of the staffers would make".

This story continues to develop and will be updated online and on 6 News.

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

"First and foremost, thanks to all who have expressed concern about Matt's condition".

"Matt suffered multiple gunshot wounds".

Mika's family issued a statement indicating that they were traveling to Washington, D.C.to be with him, and asked the media to respect their privacy. Tom Cotton said "I think the best thing we can do is pray for the health and well-being" of those involved, and "pray for the skill of the EMTs, the nurses, the doctors who are going to be caring for them". While the attack today was a bad surprise, Matt's presence on the ball field, helping longtime colleagues and friends was not.
