As the two got to know each other more, Mika's love for sports - especially Detroit teams - became pretty obvious.

"We appreciate the outpouring of support for Matt and please ask that you keep him, his family and everyone affected by this senseless act of violence in your thoughts and prayers". Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Francis Brooke, a member of the vice president's staff and a coach on the GOP baseball team who was present at the site of the shooting.

The congressman said Mika's status as an "overachiever" goes back to his days playing football and baseball at Michigan's Adrian College.

The gunman, James T. Hodgkinson III, 66, from IL, died from gunshot wounds from police.
