Would-be gunman launched into Trump tirade before shooting

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three other people were wounded in the attack.

The list included Reps.

According to a source who spoke with CBS News, the list isn't being considered an "assassination list", as it was described by The Daily Caller, who first reported the news. All six congressmen are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber's most conservative members.

James Hodgkinson began firing at Republicans during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Democrats won 11-2, then turned right around and gave the trophy to the Republican team to put in Scalise's office.

Franks was not on the team, adding uncertainty about the significance of the list of names. Duncan said he told him it was a Republican ball practice, and Hodgkinson started to shoot them.

"It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co", Hodgkinson wrote in one post.

Sue Hodgkinson said she felt "horrible", saying, "I had no idea this was going to happen and I don't know what to say about it".

Suzanne Hodgkinson said that her husband had moved to the Washington, D.C., area in March to "work with people to change the tax brackets".

"I'm sorry that he did this but there's nothing I can do about it", she said.
