Hospital officials said Wednesday evening that Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, was still in critical condition after being shot.

At the time of the shooting Scalise, the third highest-ranking member of the House of Representatives, was being protected by Capitol Police security detail.

President Trump visited Scalise in the hospital on Wednesday, calling him a "fighter."

Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, was helping with practice when he was shot. He is still in the ICU in critical condition.

"While the attack today was a terrible surprise, Matt's presence on the ball field, helping longtime colleagues and friends was not," Mika's family said. "He is a very thoughtful, fun-loving person who is competitive and loyal; all things which contributed to his continued commitment to the Congressional Baseball Game."

Mika, a former college baseball and football player, has worked for Tyson for more than six years.
