The Daily Caller said it had confirmed three of the names: Brooks, South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan and Arizona Congressman Trent Franks.

The Daily Caller's report did not identify the source of its information.

All three Congressmen on the shooter's hit list belong to the House Freedom Caucus, which is comprised of the House of Representative's most conservative members. But Fox News reported that it had not confirmed any names on the list. Hodgkinson's Facebook page is filled with vitriolic rants against the Republican Party and he belonged to a Facebook group entitled "Terminate The Republican Party".

Hodgkinson, who was shot by police and later died, apparently had been living out of his van in Alexandria since March. "He asked me if this team was the Republican or Democrat team practicing". Bernie Sanders' campaign, Hodgkinson's social media profile was filled with violent-sounding rhetoric against the Republican Party.

The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter's pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation.

Contacted by AL.com on Friday, Brooks said he has been told to refer all questions to the Capitol Police for comment.

Also wounded in the attack were Congressional staffer Zachary Barth, Tyson Foods' Director of Government Relations Matt Mika, and Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner.

The FBI said in a joint statement with other law enforcement agencies Friday that it is continuing to process evidence in an effort to determine a motive in the shooting.

Several people were injured, including Rep. Scalise.

She said she was married to James Hodgkinson for almost 30 years but they have not been together since March, when he moved to Washington, D.C.

Hodgkinson was fatally shot during an exchange of gunfire with police during the rampage. "I have never said 'life sucks, ' only the policies of the Republicans", he wrote in another.
