Mo Brooks' name appeared on James Hodgkinson assassination hit list, report says

23 June 2017

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

The condition of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., was listed as "fair" Wednesday at noon, according to MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Law enforcement officials proceeded Friday with their investigation of the attack at a suburban Virginia park, including examining Hodgkinson's social media activities and his home in Belleville, Illinois.

Hodgkinson is accused of shooting at several members of the Republican baseball team that was practicing this week for the annual congressional baseball game played for charity.

The names on the list included Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala.; Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.; and Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., the DC reported.


The officials said investigators don't know what the list of names means, but members of Congress have been briefed.

Duncan said he spoke to Hodgkinson before the shooting.

The update came on the heels of a Federal Bureau of Investigation press conference given that morning, which gave further details on the shooting at the Congressional baseball practice last week. Scalise, 51, sustained injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in his left hip early on Wednesday at a baseball field in a suburb of Washington. The Louisiana Republican underwent multiple surgeries, having received multiple blood transfusions after suffering blood loss. So he's doing a lot better.

A spokeswoman for Capitol Police did not return CNN's request for comment.
