List of GOP lawmakers found in Virginia shooter's pocket

Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.

Hodgkinson is accused of shooting at several members of the Republican baseball team that was practicing this week for the annual congressional baseball game played for charity. Scalise remained in critical condition Thursday afternoon, and although doctors say his condition has improved some over the last 36 hours, he will require further surgeries, time in the hospital and rehabilitation. Brooks said the list was short and the other names he was told of were also GOP congressmen.

The FBI said in a joint statement with other law enforcement agencies Friday that it is continuing to process evidence in an effort to determine a motive in the shooting.

Brooks' office told WAFF 48 News they could not comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

Neighbor heard shots, saw UPS drivers running
In its statement, UPS said the company wasn't immediately sure of the status of the survivors who were taken to the hospital. The next thing he knew, he said, "there's a mob of UPS drivers" running down the street screaming "shooter, shooter".

Duncan told reporters the morning of the attack that he had encountered Hodgkinson who asked him if it was Republican or Democratic lawmakers on the field.

The wife of the Alexandria, Virginia, gunman said she's shocked about the attack and had no idea what her husband was planning. She said she hasn't been with her husband since March, when he moved to the Washington D.C. area.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and remains hospitalized. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Federal authorities are investigating Hodgkinson's motives, including examining social media posts that included anti-Trump and anti-Republican sentiments.
