Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson's Body

Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson's Body

Hodgkinson was mortally wounded by police.

Scalise was fielding ground balls at second base Wednesday when he was shot at a practice for the annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

The law enforcement source tells CNN that it is not clear that it is an assassination list.

The suspect in the shooting at the congressional baseball practice earlier this week had a list including the names of some members of Congress on him, CBS News has confirmed.

Democratic and Republican lawmakers have roundly condemned Hodgkinson's actions and called for a moment of unity immeidately after the shooting.

Hodgkinson appeared to be a volunteer with Bernie Sanders' failed presidential campaign, the Vermont senator said shortly after the incident in a statement.

Federal authorities are investigating Hodgkinson's motives, including examining social media posts that included anti-Trump and anti-Republican sentiments. Also hurt but released from hospitals were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

O'Connor said there's nothing to suggest that Bost was a target. And House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was still in critical condition Friday night.

O'Connor said Bost's office has turned over all of their communications from Hodgkinson to U.S. Capitol Police.

Investigators studying Wednesday's attack at a suburban Virginia park said Thursday that Hodgkinson had obtained his rifle and handgun from licensed firearms dealers. While it does not show anybody getting shot, it is still absolutely terrifying.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized.
