List of GOP lawmakers found in Virginia shooter's pocket

It contained the names of Rep. Mo Brooks, Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona, Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC and some other names that were not released.

Officials also found cell-phone pictures of the baseball field where Hodgkinson fired shots, The New York Times reported.

The discovery of the list could prove that the assassination attempt was a premeditated act, rather that a spontaneous outburst.

It's not clear if the piece of paper, which contained five names and descriptions, was a list of intended targets, NBC News reported.

Franks was not on the team, adding uncertainty about the significance of the list of names.


"Fox News understands that the Capitol Hill police have reached out independently to all of the offices on the list", Herridge said. He says Hodgkinson told him Trump screwed up the nation "more than anyone in the history of this country". After all, Hodgkinson only attacked Republicans and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) continues to fight for his life in the hospital after being gravely injured from a bullet fired by Hodgkinson. Hodgkinson was killed on scene by police, but investigators have uncovered some troubling new details about his intentions.

Also suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth. Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday's baseball practice, but were not wounded in the attack.

She said Hodgkinson's political views had taken an "extreme, fanatic" turn in 2016; while "life moved on for other people", she said, the election had "never ended for him".

Doctors said Friday that Scalise had a second surgery on Thursday and although he remains in critical condition, his condition has improved.

In his first public comments since the shooting, Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said it's a "good possibility" that Scalise will be able to return to work in his full capacity. Authorities believe he was living out of a van since leaving IL in March; his brother said he was in the capital region to protest President Trump.
