Baseball Gunman Had List of GOP Congressmen in Pocket During Attack

House whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was wounded by Hodgkinson.

Several people were injured, including Rep. Scalise.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost (R-Ill.) at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman said, calling the emails and phone calls negative but not threatening. Two of its windows were smashed by bullets and have been boarded up with wood until they are replaced.

The attack on a group of Republican lawmakers at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field was not linked to terrorism, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a briefing on Wednesday.

The windows of the YMCA next to the field have been boarded up with wood until they are replaced. Police found an assassin's list on Hodgkinson's body, after he was shot and killed by U.S. Capital Police - heroically preventing a massacre.

All three reps on the list are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the chamber's most conservative members.

He underwent emergency surgery immediately and was expected to make a full recovery but his condition has since become more serious. In the last 24 months, I've called Trump every name in the book - even if, after he was elected, I caught grief from hardcore lefties for acknowledging reality and calling him "president".

An evidence tag and chalk remains on the ground in the parking lot of the stadium. It fires the same medium-powered ammunition as the first generation of Kalashnikov assault rifles, which replaced the SKS in Soviet military service. They ducked for cover in another dugout. It is not known how many other names may have been on Hodgkinson's list. Bernie Sanders' campaign, Hodgkinson's social media profile was filled with violent-sounding rhetoric against the Republican Party.

The attack is believed to be politically motivated as congressman Ron DeSantis revealed Hodgkinson approached him and his Republican colleague Jeff Duncan before he started a shooting rampage. Shortly after 7 a.m., he began shooting at a group of congressmen and their aides who were in the middle of a practice session.

The incident shook Washington and has toned down partisan rifts since.

Last week, the world was told that the accused shooter in an attack on a congressional baseball game Wednesday morning was from Belleville.

How could it last when some conservative lawmakers and commentators are already blaming progressives and liberals for the shooting that left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La) in critical condition after surgery to fix damage to his hip and internal organs. "That would be like me trying to impugn everyone on the right because some sick, right-wing kid walks into a church in South Carolina and shoots people in prayer", he added, a reference to the 2015 killings at a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina.
