After hospital visit with Scalise, Ryan says he's doing well

Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said last week that Scalise had "sustained a single rifle wound that entered in the area of the left hip".

The FBI says Hodgkinson was carrying around a list of names, members of Congress. Officials aren't saying who those members were.

Also on Wednesday, Scalise was upgraded from "serious" to "fair" condition. Capitol Police investigated the threat sent to Garrett via a private Facebook message, in which a a fake Facebook account threatened, in detail, to kill Garrett and members of his family.

Scalise was one of four people who were shot during the incident, while two others ‒ Representative Roger Williams (R-Texas) and Capitol Police Special Agent David Bailey ‒ were injured during the chaos.

Before the first shots were reported just after 7 a.m., Hodgkinson raised the ominous prospect of a politically-motivated attack when he encountered Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and others in the baseball field parking lot.

His congressional post as House majority whip, the third-ranking member of the Republican leadership, presumably will remain vacant during the recuperation period.

Slater says he specifically targeted GOP members and he goes on to say, "While the shooter was not known to have a diagnosed history of mental illness, he is known, or was known to have an anger management problem".


During a search of Hodgkinson's van, investigators found a a handwritten list of six House Republicans' names.

President Donald Trump will make good on a campaign promise Friday when he signs a bill that gives leadership at the Department of Veterans Affairs more power to fire failed employees and protect those who uncover wrongdoing at the agency.

Hodgkinson also took part in a tax-themed protest in D.C. on April 15, Slater said.

The FBI said at a news conference on Wednesday morning that its investigation so far indicates that Hodgkinson acted alone and that investigators have not found a "nexus to terrorism".

A storage locker rented by Hodgkinson in Alexandria, Virginia, was found to hold "a laptop computer, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, a receipt for a November 2016 gun purchase and additional SKS rifle components".

In mid to late April, Slater said, Hodgkinson visited the offices of Vermont Sen. The attack at the baseball field appeared to be more spontaneous than planned out, Slater said.

Barth was shot in the leg and has already been released from the hospital.
