"Assassination list" with Republican names found on James Hodgkinson's body

"On the third or fourth day, as I was sitting there having my coffee. we greeted each other and exchanged names". ABC News also reported that it had confirmed such a list was found.

A former mayor of Alexandria, William Euille, told CNN that he saw Hodgkinson around the YMCA, and described him as a "loner".

The gunman, identified by authorities as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Bellevile, Illinois, was killed in a firefight with police on Thursday after shooting at a party preparing for a congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia.

The man who opened fire at a baseball practice among Congress members had a list in his pocket that included Republican members of Congress.

"There's just no way that I would have guessed that this guy would be shooting at law enforcement and a congressman", said Brennwald, an attorney. Sanders, an independent, ran a passionate, anti-establishment campaign that won support from many younger, liberal voters and gave Clinton a closer race than many expected, but he eventually backed her candidacy. Hodgkinson moved from Belleville to Alexandria, Virginia, not long after Schaumleffel's "shots fired" call, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported.

A spokeswoman for Capitol Police did not return CNN's request for comment. Hodgkinson rarely joined in the political discussions often set off by the television in the room and never showed any signs that he was troubled, Euille said.

O'Connor said there's nothing to suggest that Bost was a target. "I'm glad they took care that he didn't get to do it again", Schaumleffel said. "There's no way of knowing what his motivation was".

Sava also said that Crystal Griner, one of the U.S. Capitol Police officers credited with saving Scalise and others at the field, sustained a gunshot wound to her ankle.

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise was the only congressman injured in the shooting.

Scalise can hope to make an "excellent recovery", his trauma surgeon said Friday, even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death.

The first, Wanda Ashley Stock, 17, committed suicide in 1996 by pouring gasoline on herself and setting herself on fire after a few months of living with the Hodgkinsons, the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

On Google's review page for JHT Inspections, one recent reviewer claimed that she had hired Hodgkinson to inspect her home and gotten a bad feeling about him during the transaction.

The first, obtained by the New York Post, was shot by a witness at Eugene Simpson Park.
