Scalise shooter's wife: 'I'm sorry that he did this'

The handwritten list on notepad paper was found in the shooter's pocket, sources told the Daily Caller. Investigators have not determined the goal of the list and they are still trying to determine its meaning.

Hodgkinson, the 66-year-old who opened fire on Republican lawmakers practising for a baseball game on Wednesday, was a fervent fan of leftist Senator Bernie Sanders and angered by the policies of US President Donald Trump.

GOP House Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana has undergone several surgeries after he was wounded.

According to Moreland, his daughter told her that Hodgkinson was always angry.

Suzanne Hodgkinson said that her husband had moved to the Washington, D.C., area in March to "work with people to change the tax brackets".

Duncan said he spoke with Hodgkinson briefly before the shooting, when the would-be assassin asked him in the parking lot if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. "Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms", he said.

"He would say "yeah I agree" or something like that", said former Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, who got to know Hodgkinson over the course of about six to eight weeks. "There's nothing I could do about it".

"I knew he was a Democrat, a pretty hardcore one".

He had told lawmakers at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign. Code that allows the president to do whatever he needs to, that's what we are deciding on", he said.

Hodgkinson continued to post blistering Facebook assessments of Mr Trump and the Republicans in charge in Washington.

The FBI renewed its call for information for anyone-from Belleville to Washington, D.C. -may have about congressional shooter James T. Hodgkinson.

Zachary Barth, staffer for Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), and Capitol Police agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey were also wounded in the attack, but their injuries are not life-threatening.

Hodgkinson previously resided in the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, where he worked as a home inspector.

The FBI has already recovered two weapons: a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62 caliber rifle. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) determined both were purchased legally, the FBI said Thursday.

"It's time for all of us, including myself, to tone down our rhetoric and recognize that we are all of one country and all proud Americans", he said. Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Tim Slater said the Federal Bureau of Investigation needs the public's help in piecing together Hodgkinson's whereabouts and activities while he was in Alexandria.

Agents continue to look into the shooter's activities and social media presence in the months leading up to the attack.
