Congressional shooter carried list of Republican lawmakers

Congressional shooter carried list of Republican lawmakers

The wife of the man who shot and wounded a top Republican congressman and several others at a baseball field outside Washington Wednesday said she saw no signs that her husband was planning any violence when he told her he was traveling to the nation's capital earlier this year.

Scalise remains in critical condition.

Former congressional staffer Matt Mika was shot multiple times in the chest and arm and "requires assistance to breathe", according to his family.

"We understand he is lucky to be alive", the family said, crediting Mika's survival to his "fighting spirit" and the heroism of Capitol Police agents who took down the shooter.

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

ADL urges hate crime probe in Virginia killing of Muslim girl
The body of 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen was discovered by police floating in a pond in Sterling, Virginia on Sunday afternoon. According to family friend Yufra Abdelmuid, Torres was eating there and then followed them in his vehicle as they left.

Hodgkinson previously resided in the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, where he worked as a home inspector. The FBI believes Hodgkinson had moved from IL to Alexandria in recent months, and was living in his vehicle. Duncan said he answered that the players were Republicans, before leaving the field.

Hodgkinson's weapons, a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62 mm caliber (.30-caliber) rifle, were recovered at the scene, according to a joint statement issued Thursday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and several state and local law enforcement agencies. The YMCA said that Hodgkinson had canceled his membership on Tuesday, and said he was moving.

"I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center said at a news conference Friday afternoon. Bernie Sanders' campaign, Hodgkinson's social media profile was filled with violent-sounding rhetoric against the Republican Party.

The FBI has already recovered two weapons: a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62 caliber rifle.

Authorities are still working to determine the motive for the attack, according to AP. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful". The Bureau is now seeking more information about the attacker.
