The Huffington Post's Matt Fuller also reported on Twitter that Ryan got "bipartisan standing ovations" on the House floor as he praised the two Capitol Police officers who were injured in the shooting. "My other son Brad was in the, the batting cage and he also is very fearless".

"Everyone on that field is a public servant", Trump said.

The family says in a statement Thursday that Mika suffered "massive trauma" Wednesday when a gunman opened fire at a baseball practice, injuring a congressman and others. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.
