  • House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

The man who shot senior Republican congressman Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice session this week had a list containing the names of three politicians, officials said.

Medstar Washington Hospital Centre released the update on behalf of the Scalise family.

Hodgkinson opened fire on congressman and their aides on Wednesday while they practiced at a baseball field in Alexandria. The injuries had put the majority whip at an "imminent risk of death", said Jack Sava, director of trauma care for MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Scalise, 51, had another surgery on Saturday and "he is more responsive and is speaking with his loved ones", a statement posted to his Twitter account said. Doctors said Friday the bullet entered at his hip and traveled across his body, causing severe damage to internal organs.

James Hodgkinson had a handwritten note on him at the time of the shooting that contained about five names and descriptions, a credible federal law enforcement source confirmed to WTOP's JJ Green.
