Wounded Rep. Steve Scalise out of intensive care

The day before the attack at the ballfield, he engaged in a profane tirade against President Donald Trump in a conversation with a mechanic in Alexandria, echoing some of the criticisms of Trump and Republicans that he had posted on social media accounts.

The FBI says the gunman who shot and injured House GOP Whip Steve Scalise and three other people during a Republican congressional baseball practice last week fired a total of 60 rounds with two firearms and had a list of six members of Congress when he carried out the attack.

Authorities also recovered a written list of Republican lawmakers from the suspect's pocket that included Reps.

Slater said Hodgkinson legally purchased both the guns he used in the attack - the handgun in March 2003 and the rifle in November 2016, after the presidential election.

But Hodgkinson did bring with him an SKS rifle and a handgun. The F.B.I.'s statement provided the most complete picture to date of the troubled man's time in Virginia, where he moved in the weeks before the shooting. Most days, he would arrive between 6 and 7 a.m.

Hodgkinson had been living in a van, which was found in the parking lot of the nearby YMCA he visited daily. A sketch of several streets in Washington, D.C., was also found, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was deemed to be of no investigative significance.

FBI investigators have not released the names on the list, but Griffith said law enforcement informed him of his connection to the case Thursday - the day after the June 14 shooting.

Investigators also reviewed Hodgkinson's online searches and browsing history, revealing queries for the "2017 Republican Convention" and directions from Alexandria to his IL home on the night before the shooting.

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

James Hodgkinson, 66, also sent emails to Democratic Sens. The gunman did not meet with the senator, a Sanders spokesman told the Washington Post on Wednesday. "He was married for 30 years, and it appears that that marriage was not going so well", Slater said. He is in an extended period of rapid healing and rehabilitation, the hospital said.

"You've got union considerations, civil service considerations that the democrats were concerned about, and you have some considerations for the republicans that wanted to know how much it would cost to put the electronic medical records into effect", Raczkowski said. On Wednesday, the hospital said Scalise had been upgraded to fair condition and was showing signs of improvement. He was the most seriously injured victim among the five who were shot last week.

Expected to make a full recovery.

Mika is out of the intensive care unit and appeared to be in good spirits during a visit with Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth. Shortly before he left his home in Belleville, Illinois, local police officers had responded to several complaints about target practice Hodgkinson had been conducting at his home, though they determined he had been breaking no laws. The fleur-de-lis is the official symbol of the Pelican State, while purple and gold are the colors of Scalise's alma mater, Louisiana State University.
