Before his time at Tyson, Mika worked for the The North American Meat Institute, an association representing the meat and poultry packing and processing industry, for two years, his LinkedIn profile shows.

Arkansas-based Tyson Foods Inc. says one of its employees was among those shot at a congressional baseball practice Wednesday.

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 released a statement Thursday saying he suffered "massive trauma", needs breathing assistance and will need more surgery.

Mickelson says Mika is director of government relations for Tyson's Washington, D.C., office and that he's worked for the company for more than six years.

Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and a former aide to Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg, was shot in the chest and arm during the attack Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia.

Mika's family credited first responders, the medical team and Mika's "fighting spirit and grit".
