Congressman, others wounded in shooting in Va.

Congressman, others wounded in shooting in Va.

It's still unclear if the names on the list - which includes Republican Reps. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Trent Franks of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama.

All three members of the House whose names were reported by The Daily Caller are members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

The FBI has contacted the congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.

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.

Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday's baseball practice.

Hodgkinson, 66, died in the shootout with officers - but not before injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., a staff member and two Capitol Police officers.

The Congressional Baseball Game is a long-standing summer tradition in Washington, with teams of Republican and Democratic lawmakers competing on the ball field, even in recent years, when fractious political debates are the norm.

Tillerson, too, faulted Qatar for allowing funds to flow to extremist groups, but in terms that were much less severe. Still, the Pentagon has been developing contingency plans in case there's any interruption, defense officials said.

Rep. Scalise, No. 3 in the House Republican leadership, was shot in the hip.

The gunman was believed to have harbored unfavorable views toward Republicans at large, including President Donald Trump.

Hodgkinson's weapons, a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62 mm caliber (.30-caliber) rifle, were recovered at the scene, according to a joint statement issued Thursday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and several state and local law enforcement agencies. He had been a vocal opponent of the Republican Party. The YMCA said that Hodgkinson had canceled his membership on Tuesday, and said he was moving.

"I'm sorry that he did this", she added.

The shooter fired repeatedly with a rifle at the baseball field in Alexandria before being wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police who were at the scene, lawmakers said.

"I had no idea this was going to happen and I don't know what to say about it". She said she thought her husband, James Hodgkinson, had gone to the Washington area to work on tax policy.
