"There are a number of different indications now that this was a pre-meditated situation", Franks said Friday on CNN's "OutFront", though he declined to discuss the reported list.

"The center of America is disappearing, and the violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left", GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa said over Twitter. They said he told his wife earlier this week he was heading back to IL; he canceled his YMCA membership a day before the shooting; and had talked to a local garage about getting his van ready for the trip. CBS News, citing sources, reported there were multiple writings found amid Hodgkinson's possessions.

Scalise underwent surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Wednesday after a man with a rifle shot him at a morning practice of the Republican congressional baseball team in Alexandria, Va. The popular annual face-off, which raises money for charity, is scheduled to go forward as planned Thursday evening at Nationals Park in Washington.

She added that law enforcement officials are cautioning against drawing conclusions about the list or the suspect's motivations for having it until more information is available. Hodgkinson also volunteered for the 2016 presidential campaign of Sen.

Not mentioned: A June 8 social media post by Hodgkinson where he refers to Karen Handel, the Republican candidate for Georgia's open 6th Congressional District seat. 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.

O'Connor said there's nothing to suggest that Bost was a target. "I can't wrap my head around it", she said. "There's no way of knowing what his motivation was".

Duncan has said he spoke with Hodgkinson just before the shooting.

Hodgkinson, 66, wounded House Rep. Steve Scalise before he was fatally shot by police who had been guarding the House majority whip. The doctor described how a bullet from an assault rifle entered Scalise's hip and traversed his pelvis, shattering blood vessels, bones and internal organs along the way.

Clyburn charged that Trump "is allowed to hide behind political correctness to say all kinds of things about people, and I'm a little bit sick and exhausted of people saying anything they want to say about anyone they want to say it about".

Sue Hodgkinson talked with reporters briefly in Belleville, Illinois, on Thursday - in part to ask the media to stop disrupting the neighborhood. A trace of the firearms determined they were legally purchased by Hodgkinson.

Scalise, as the third-ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives, had a capitol police detail with him at the practice.

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

Four other people were wounded by gunfire, and two of them were still hospitalized, including lobbyist Matt Mika, also in critical condition.
