Alexandria shooter carried a list of six Congress members

Alexandria shooter carried a list of six Congress members

House Speaker Paul Ryan says the congressman grievously injured in last week's shooting at a Republican baseball practice is "on the road to recovery" but it will take some time.

Also on Wednesday, Scalise was upgraded from "serious" to "fair" condition.

Hodgkinson, who died from injuries after the shooting, did not have any ties to terrorism, Tim Slater, head of the Washington FBI office, said at a news conference.

The FBI says Hodgkinson was carrying around a list of names, members of Congress. Officials aren't saying who those members were.

"Our veterans have fulfilled their duty to our nation and now we must fulfill our duty to them", Trump said during a White House ceremony.

Hodgkinson also frequented a local library during his time in the Alexandria area and, based on photographs found on his cellphone, saw various sites in D.C., such as the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress and the Washington Monument.

Scalise and other congressional Republicans were practicing for their annual charity baseball game against Democrats when the gunman started shooting.

Russian Billionaire Fridman's L1 Retail Buys Holland & Barrett
Holland & Barrett is Europe's largest health and wellness retail chain, with more than 1,150 shops and an online business. It is thought that chief executive Peter Aldis will stay in his position at the company, which has over 4,200 employees.

Congressman Scalise has undergone several surgeries and remains hospitalized, but he continues to improve. He was more responsive and spoke with his loved ones, the hospital said.

Slater said Hodgkinson acted alone and was known to have an "anger management problem". None of the five people injured in last Wednesday's shooting, reports the Washington Post. The VA is the second-largest department in the US government, with more than 350,000 employees, and it is charged with providing health care and other services to military veterans. The unit contained a laptop, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, the receipt for his 2016 rifle purchase, and other rifle components. A family member told investigators Hodgkinson had expressed a desire to return to IL in a message on June 12.

A review of one of Hodgkinson's laptops by the Federal Bureau of Investigation found that he had searched the web but "only cursory" searches of two of those members on the list.

Before the first shots were reported just after 7 a.m., Hodgkinson raised the ominous prospect of a politically-motivated attack when he encountered Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and others in the baseball field parking lot. Capitol Police officers who were assigned to Scalise returned fire, and were soon joined by Alexandria police. And sometime between April 15 and April 26, Hodgkinson visited the Capitol Hill office of U.S. Sen. Hodgkinson asked, according to the FBI's account.

He was "running out of money", unemployed, and looking for a job, while his 30-year marriage "was not going so well", Slater said.

In a lengthy statement, the F.B.I. also revealed that the man, James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill.
