Shooter went to GOP baseball practice with list of names

Congressman Brooks told CNN that he was contacted by Capitol Hill Police and told that his name and office number were on the list.

Hodgkinson had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media. He died after officers in Scalise's security detail and local police fired at him.

They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally.

Those who crossed his path, in the weeks before the shooting remembers Hodgkinson as an angry man, who took his anti-Republican rants online before going after the GOP during baseball practice. This person was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity. The hospital's chief trauma doctor has said Scalise faced "an imminent risk of death" at the time he was brought in.

A statement released by the MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Scalise's condition had been upgraded, and that he was now listed as serious, rather than critical.

Sava later told The Associated Press that Scalise's care is on track for someone with such a severe injury but that he still faces many risks to recovery.

When Dr. Sava explained the extent of Scalise's injuries, however, the full nature of what the congressman suffered became apparent.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said in a statement condemning all acts of violence.

The House of Representatives' No. 3 Republican leader was in grave condition when he was first shot.

On Wednesday morning, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson opened fire on participants of the Republican baseball practice, injuring US Scalise and four other individuals.

The doctor said U.S. Capitol Police Special Agent Crystal Griner, who was also wounded in the shooting, "sustained a gunshot wound to the ankle, and remains hospitalized in good condition".

On Thursday night Scalise was honored at the annual congressional baseball game at Nationals Stadium, where a record crowd showed up. Unity was the theme of the spirited rivalry; Democrats won in an 11-2 blowout.
