Wounded congressman Scalise transferred from ICU

Lillian Steele | 25 June, 2017, 02:49

"Congressman Steve Scalise's continued good progress allowed him to be transferred out of the Intensive Care Unit on Thursday (June 22)".

U.S. Capitol Police special agents and officers from Alexandria returned fire, killing the gunman.

FBI investigators have not released the names on the list, but Griffith said law enforcement informed him of his connection to the case Thursday - the day after the June 14 shooting.

Federal investigators concluded that there was no connection to terrorism and that all evidence indicated that Hodgkinson had acted alone. The unit contained a laptop, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, the receipt for his 2016 rifle purchase, and other rifle components. Slater declined to say who the six members of Congress were, but previous reports have said the list included Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala.; Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.; and Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz. The message was accompanied by a cartoon depiction of Scalise.

The person who provided the information not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Although Hodgkinson often posted angry, anti-Republican political rants on his Facebook, he "did not place any online posts of threats or references to members of Congress or the Congressional baseball game", Slater said, describing the shooting as more of a spontaneous event than a premeditated one.

Hodgkinson, outside the Post Office in his hometown, Belleville, Ill., in 2012.

The charges ranged from minor driving offenses and repeated failures to obtain work permits to battery and driving under the influence.

Ryan made the comments to reporters Wednesday morning.

But Hodgkinson did bring with him an SKS rifle and a handgun.

"The guy was very cordial", the sheriff said.

Hodgkinson died from injuries inflicted during the shooting.

Still, Slater said that there is no evidence that the gunman had advance knowledge that the lawmakers would be practicing there or that he was specifically targeting any of those involved in the practice.

On April 15, Hodgkinson participated in a tax reform protest. She was released from the hospital last week.

"It was a pattern of life where you could tell things were not going well for Tom", Slater said, referring to Hodgkinson by his middle name. "I can't wrap my head around it, OK?"
