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

Tyson spokesman Gary Mickelson identified the wounded employee as Matt Mika.   The family said in a statement Wednesday he remains in intensive care after 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.

He says the company is “deeply concerned” about Mika and his family.

The family said they expect Mika to remain in the hospital for several days.   The family said, “We continue to be in disbelief that he would be part of this heinous attack.”

Based in Springdale, Arkansas, Tyson Foods is one of the world’s largest producers of chicken, beef and pork.
