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.

A USA official told CBS News that James Hodgkinson, the Alexandria shooter, had a list of names including GOP Reps.

Mr Scalise's surgeon said he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", despite being seriously ill when he arrived at hospital after the shooting in Virginia last week. Doctors said Friday the bullet entered at his hip and traveled across his body, causing severe damage to internal organs. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said.

The man who opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing baseball had angrily railed against President Donald Trump the day before the shooting.

The gunman, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, was shot and killed by responding officers.

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two, three days ago", Sava said.

Scalise, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, congressional aide Zach Barth and US Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner were shot during an attack on the Republican congressional baseball team as it practiced Wednesday morning.

Doctors treating wounded House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise have upgraded his condition from "critical" to "serious". "After discharge he will need a period of healing and rehabilitation".

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers. His family said in a statement Saturday that Mika had undergone another operation and was expected to recover fully, according to NBC News.
