List of GOP congressmen found with baseball practice shooter

Hodgkinson, the IL man who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice last week, had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three lawmakers, according to a person familiar with the case.

Handwritten on notepad paper, the list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, anonymous sources told the Daily Caller. And it was at that auto shop that his anger flared during small talk with the mechanic."This man was just so passionate and hateful toward (President Donald) Trump", said Crist Dauberman, recounting Hodgkinson's profanity-laden tirade.Among other things, Hodgkinson said Trump had screwed up the country "more than anyone in the history of this country".

U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana took a bullet to the left hip in the assault. Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, updated his status on Friday afternoon, touting Scalise's improved outlook days after his arrival and 'imminent risk of death'.

No timeline has been given for Scalise's recovery.

For now, Scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Duncan spoke with Hodgkinson before he opened fire at the Republican congressional baseball practice, wounding five including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. He posted rhetoric against the political party on social media.

Mika, a MI native, was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia.

Nonetheless, Sava said, "We fully expect him to be able to walk" and "hopefully run". Duncan said he told him it was a Republican ball practice, and Hodgkinson started to shoot them.

Also suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.
