Fox News reported that it had confirmed the existence of a list found in Hodgkinson's possession, containing names of Republicans.

The Daily Caller first reported that James T. Hodgkinson had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Authorities say the man who opened fire on GOP lawmakers on Wednesday was carrying a list of Republicans, according to NBC News. Morgan Griffith were also included on that list, according to a separate report from Fox News. All six congressmen are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber's most conservative members.

The congressmen named on the list were notified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Daily Caller reported.

In the immediate aftermath of the Arlington shooting during practice for a Congressional baseball game, little was known about the shooter who took out his political frustrations with bloodshed.

Brooks told CNN that he was contacted by Capitol Police and told his name and office number were on the list. Scalise remained in critical condition on Friday although his condition has improved, doctors said.

Flake said two members of Scalise's security detail were wounded, and another man was wounded in the chest.

Posts from a year ago show he was adamantly opposed to Clinton, and, after the election, to President Donald Trump. The FBI says the shooter's white van has been processed.

They also point to entertainer Kathy Griffin, who posted an internet video showing her holding up the likeness of the bloody, decapitated head of Obama?

Suzanne Hodgkinson asked reporters to leave the area, saying that she and her family had been through enough.

He spewed left-wing talking points on Facebook, consistently railing against Republicans and the wealthy. "I responded that it was the Republican team practicing, and he proceeded to shoot Republicans", Duncan said the day of the shooting.

The alleged shooter, identified by police as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, was killed in a shootout with police Wednesday morning after shooting Rep. They recovered a 7.62 caliber rifle and a 9 mm handgun, which they say Hodgkinson bought legally. And we learned that her husband told her that he wanted to go to Washington D.C.to work with people to change the tax brackets.

Hodgkinson's time spent volunteering on Vermont Sen.
