Grafe was referring to conversation about James Hodgkinson, a Belleville man who was identified as the shooter who attacked legislators during a baseball game.

News that the gunman had a list of names on him at the time of the shooting suggests that it wasn't a random incident but instead was a premeditated attempt to kill the politicians. "I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm".

Capitol Police officers at the scene Wednesday morning returned fire, wounding Hodgkinson.

Rep. Steve Scalise is still in critical condition, but his health is improving, the Congressman's surgeon said two days after Scalise was shot at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game.

Mr Trump said Mr Scalise was "a true friend and patriot".

Sue Hodgkinson said her husband left the couple's home in March to move to Washington, shortly after their adopted daughter moved back into the house with her two-year-old son.

WANG: Well, at this point, the FBI's confirmed that the shooter used a 9-millimeter handgun and also a 7.62-caliber rifle.

Trump made an unannounced visit - with first lady Melania Trump and White House physician Ronny Jackson - to the hospital late Wednesday after Scalise's first surgery. Officer Griner U.S. Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner was shot in the ankle but is in good condition, according to U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa.

Hours before the shooting, he posted to the Facebook group page "Terminate the Republican Party", calling the Republicans "thieving" and "cheating".

Defenders of the production say they have a First Amendment right to express their anger at Trump that way.

He appeared to have taken Mr Trump's victory in November particularly hard, letting a licence on his business lapse that month.

"I was under the impression he was going down there to protest", said his niece, Michelle Travous.
