DesJarlais' Name on Note of Virginia Gunman

DesJarlais' Name on Note of Virginia Gunman”

The name of U.S. Congressman Scott DesJarlais was on a note found with the gunman who opened fire at the practice for the Congressional Baseball game.

A congressional staffer, a lobbyist and two members of the Capitol police force were also injured.

News 2 spoke with the congressman on Monday, who said he was surprised to find he was James T. Hodgkinson's list.

Thomas says DesJarlais' office was notified about the list shortly after the incident at the baseball field. "But at that point, the shooter had been killed, so I didn't feel particularly threatened by that", DesJarlais added. Scalise remains hospitalized and has since undergone surgery.

Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old of Belleville, Illinois, died following a shootout with authorities.

Investigators have said that a 7.62-caliber rifle and 9 mm handgun recovered after Hodgkinson was shot appear to have been legally purchased from federally licensed gun dealers. Authorities said he had a history of anti-GOP activity. "Americans elected us to improve the economy and health care, but some people are taking "massive resistance" to a risky extreme".
