SHINGTON (AP) - Another victim of the mass shooting that critically injured a congressman is out of the hospital.

The family of Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika says he was released Friday from George Washington University Hospital.

Mika was among five people hit by gunfire multiple times in his chest and arm in the attack on a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on June 14. The others were U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, two U.S. Capitol Police officers and a congressional aide.

Police officers shot and killed the gunman, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Illinois.

Scalise has undergone several surgeries and remains at Medstar Washington Hospital Center in fair condition.
