Mo Brook's name found on hit list of Congressional baseball shooter

The Latest: Trump says Scalise 'took a bullet' for all of us GOP, Dems unite in DC game

"His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations", the hospital said. Fox News reporter Chad Pergram reported that Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) were also on that list.

"For those still wondering, he didn't hate baseball or attractive summer mornings in June", White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said in reference to this article. Brennwald thought it was odd he never saw Hodgkinson exercise or wear workout clothes and considered asking a staffer about him but never did, he said.

That was a day before he sprayed rifle fire at Republican members of Congress as they practiced for a charity baseball game, wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others before he was mortally wounded by police. Hodgkinson fired the gun as the man retreated, although police said it wasn't clear if it was aimed at him. The man expressed grievances online about President Donald Trump and Republicans, but authorities said they're still working to determine a motive.

U.S. Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner was shot in the ankle and remains hospitalized in good condition, according to The Washington Post.

The contest is a summertime tradition in Washington dating to 1909 and is known as a time for friendly competition between Republicans and Democrats, even at times when fractious political debates are the norm on Capitol Hill.

There, agents recovered a cellphone, a computer and camera that are being processed for clues related to the rampage.

"It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co.", it said. He also belonged to several anti-GOP groups on Facebook, including one called "Terminate The Republican Party".

Suzanne Hodgkinson asked reporters to leave the area, saying that she and her family had been through enough. "I can't wrap my head around it", she said, trembling as she clung to the arm of St. Clair County Deputy Richard Wagner.

The alleged shooter, identified by police as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, was killed in a shootout with police Wednesday morning after shooting Rep.

During the dispute, Moreland said, she jumped in a auto with her friend, but Hodgkinson opened the vehicle's door and hit her, then used a knife to cut the seat belt off his foster daughter.
