A list found on the body of James Hodgkinson, the suspect in Wednesday's shooting at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field, revealed the names of three Republican lawmakers, the Washington Examiner reported Friday.

In Alexandria, across the Potomac River from Washington, the YMCA is a neighborhood hub across the street from the field where Hodgkinson shot Republican Representative Steve Scalise, a congressional aide, a lobbyist and a police officer. Scalise is in critical condition.

"He wanted to go up there to work with people to change the tax brackets", she said.

"I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign", said a statement from the former Democratic presidential hopeful.

Hodgkinson says her husband prepared for his trip to Washington by selling everything he owned from his home-inspection business. "I just felt sympathy for him", Euille said. "There's nothing I could do about it".

Hodgkinson, who had been married to her husband for nearly 30 years, said he had "made preparations to leave" by "selling nearly everything he owned from his business".

The shooter, identified as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson III, wounded two police officers in the shootout. "I just want to let people know that he wasn't evil, that he was, I guess, exhausted of some of the politics that are going on".

Ryan recently that he had concerns about the safety of members "and the thought that violence would come to our family next". The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with family.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", he said.

- Federal agents surrounded the St. Clair County home of James Hodgkinson. And St. Louis Public Radio also spoke to one of his neighbors Bill Schaumleffel, who said that he didn't interact very much with his neighbors.

WANG: Later, the deputies from the local sheriff's department arrived.

Stephen Brennwald, another YMCA member, said he never saw Hodgkinson talk to anyone and figured the man was a "loner".

Hodgkinson's Facebook page has been taken down by the social media site, but before it was removed, screenshots were taken and have since circulated. The FBI says the shooter's white van has been processed. "We had policemen and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation in here asking questions, but we just don't know him".

The first, Wanda Ashley Stock, 17, committed suicide in 1996 by pouring gasoline on herself and setting herself on fire after a few months of living with the Hodgkinsons, the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
