Family: Michigan native shot multiple times in chest, arm

We're praying for him and we love him.

"We're deeply concerned about him and his family", Tyson Foods said in a statement. Because of his condition, Matt can not receive visitors or accept gifts in the ICU.

Lobbyist Matt Mika, 38, was shot in his chest and arm, suffered massive trauma and is in the intensive care unit at George Washington University Hospital here. Although he needs assistance to breathe and will need additional surgeries, Mika has been conscious and communicating through notes, the family said. "We should be extremely grateful for Capitol Police this morning and other first responders on the scene for their heroic work", Hill wrote.

To collect even more money on Monday , the Seahawks made things slightly more hard : Lacy had to weigh 250 pounds or less. Last season he weighed in at 234 pounds and rushed for a career-low 360 yards, after only appearing in five games.

The family says they will continue to update the media as Matt's condition changes. He has also worked in the offices of Rep. Tim Walberg and former Rep. Dave Camp, both Michigan Republicans, according to his LinkedIn profile. The hospital confirmed to TIME that one victim from the shooting remains in critical condition. He is undergoing surgery. He's now director of government relations for Tyson Foods Washington office.

The congressman said Mika's status as an "overachiever" goes back to his days playing football and baseball at Michigan's Adrian College. Mika was shot Wednesday morning by a gunman, identified by the Associated Press as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill.

Hodgkinson has a violent criminal history, and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents said they believe he had been living out of his vehicle in the Alexandria area since March. "He is grateful for the fearless actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues". You can listen to the details in the video posted below.
