GOP baseball shooter had list of names, including Rep. Brooks

GOP baseball shooter had list of names, including Rep. Brooks

Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, who was shot multiple times and critically wounded, has undergone surgery and doctors expect a full recovery, his family said Saturday.

The person told The Associated Press on Saturday that investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and don't know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

Handwritten on notepad paper, the list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, anonymous sources told the Daily Caller. None of the victims injured in the attack were on the list, the law enforcement source said.

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

For all his complaining about Republicans, he had little to do with Democratic politics in his hometown.

He had targets in his sights and a list of names in his pocket.

Brooks aided two of the wounded following the early-morning shooting.

Sheriff David Clarke no longer under consideration for DHS job
Clarke adviser Craig Peterson said the sheriff believes he is of better use to President Trump "in a more aggressive role". Sheriff David Clarke is no longer taking a job at the Department of Homeland Security , his adviser says.

The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore across his pelvis, cracking bones and injuring organs and blood vessels.

"We have controlled the internal bleeding and his vital signs have stabilized", Sava said.

The FBI is still investigating the case and is looking through Hodgkinson's belongings, including his cellphone, computer and camera.

The gunman was believed to have harbored unfavorable views toward Republicans at large, including President Donald Trump.

"Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a very, very brutal assault", Trump said. They were practicing for the annual charity baseball game to be played the next day, on Thursday, at National's Field, which is a 100-year-old tradition in Washington.

"According to [the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives] weapons traces of the 9mm handgun and 7.62mm rifle found at the scene were legally purchased by the shooter with federal licenses", the FBI said in a statement.
