The FBI found a list containing Republican lawmakers' names on the body of James Hodgkinson, the now-deceased man who shot four people at a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., Wednesday, according to a report published Friday evening.
A paper in Hodgkinson's notepad contained the names of three GOP congressmen who are all members of the House Freedom Caucus: Mo Brooks of Alabama, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina and Trent Franks of Arizona.
The FBI has reached out to at least one of those men to let them know it now appears Hodgkinson was planning a political assassination and did not simply react in the moment, though the investigation is ongoing, according to the Daily Caller.
None of the three men were wounded in the shooting, though four others at the practice, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, were wounded.
Duncan told reporters in the hours after the Wednesday morning attack that he had spoken with Hodgkinson before he opened fire on them. Duncan said Hodgkinson asked if the men on the field were Republicans or Democrats.
Investigators believe Hodgkinson moved from Belleville, Ill., to Alexandria in March and had been living out of his white cargo van in the city's Del Ray neighborhood, where the shooting took place.
Hodgkinson's social media profiles contained anti-conservative rants. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., later spoke out about Hodgkinson's "apparently" volunteering for his campaign, saying he was "sickened" by what he called a "despicable act."
The FBI is still processing Hodgkinson's personal items, including a cellphone, computer and camera.
