Would-be gunman launched into Trump tirade before shooting

Posted June 22, 2017

The FBI has recovered a list of names of Republican congress members from the pocket of James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on members of Congress on June 14, according to the Daily Caller.

The list contained the names of Tennessee Rep. Scot Desjarlais, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan, and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, which was confirmed by Fox News. Among those was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who remains hospitalized after undergoing several surgeries after being shot in the hip.

Duncan had said that before he left the practice he was approached by a man he later believed to be Hodgkinson who had asked whether Republicans or Democrats were on the baseball field. "The U.S. Capitol Police and Alexandria Police Department internal investigations are ongoing".

"Fox News understands that the Capitol Hill police have reached out independently to all of the offices on the list", Herridge said. All the names listed were Republicans. Duncan said he told him it was Republicans.

"When he arrived, he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said at a press conference Friday afternoon. It is not clear whether the gunman specifically targeted them in the attack.

Brooks aided two of the wounded following the early-morning shooting.

Investigators say they've checked Hodgkinson's laptop, cell phone, and a camera found in his van but have found no manifesto, no intent to commit violence, and nothing to indicate he was scouting potential targets. 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. A government official says the suspect in the Virginia shooting that injured Rep. Steve Scalise and several others has been identified Hodgkinson.
