List of GOP congressmen found with baseball practice shooter

Alleged shooter James Hodgkinson shot Rep. Steve Scalise and members of the Capitol police force in Alexandria, Virginia, during Republicans' early-morning practice ahead of a charity baseball game on June 14, 2017.

One source told CBS News the note is not considered an "assassination list", but it is clear Hodgkinson had a group of people he was focused on recently. Investigators have not determined the goal of the list and they are still trying to determine its meaning.

Mr Scalise, the House Majority Whip, remains in a critical condition in hospital.

The wife of the Alexandria, Virginia, gunman said she's shocked about the attack and had no idea what her husband was planning. They had been separated since March when he went to Washington, D.C., to work on "changing the tax brackets".

Back in IL at least one friend of Hodgkinson - who didn't give his full name - defended him, saying, "I just want to let people know he wasn't evil, that he was exhausted of some of the politics going on".

"I was under the impression he was going down there to protest", said his niece, Michelle Travous.

Suzanne Hodgkinson said she thought her husband had traveled to Washington to focus on tax issues but had not known much of what he was doing. "There's nothing I could do about it".

Senate GOP aiming for vote this month on health legislation
Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, one of the co-authors of the forthcoming bill, was a bit more candid about the mood of Republicans. But with a slim 52-48 majority, Republicans can afford to lose only a couple of GOP senators.


His brother Michael told The New York Times: "I know he wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff".

Zachary Barth, staffer for Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), and Capitol Police agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey were also wounded in the attack, but their injuries are not life-threatening. He had been a vocal opponent of the Republican Party.

James Hodgkinson had a history of domestic violence and also a long list of minor offenses in his home county, most of which were tossed out, according to the AP.

"The friend said Hodgkinson sold tools to get enough money for the trip", according to Kaiser. He used a.30-caliber semi-automatic rifle and a 9 mm handgun.

She was emotional as she spoke to reporters Thursday outside her home in Belleville, Illinois. The bureau said it had recovered a cell phone, computer, and camera in the van. His social media activity showed a disdain for GOP officials.

Chief Deputy Sheriff Richard Wagner reflected on those interactions and said, "He never tipped us off or gave any indication that he was violent in any way". On Facebook, he posted furious criticism of President Donald Trump and pledged allegiance to Senator Bernie Sanders.
