The gunman who opened fire on a congressional Republican baseball practice in Virginia on Wednesday had a list of names that included several GOP lawmakers, according to multiple reports.

The Daily Caller first reported that James T. Hodgkinson had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI.

"There are a number of different indications now that this was a pre-meditated situation," Franks said Friday on CNN's "OutFront," though he declined to discuss the reported list.

Brooks and Franks were at the baseball field where the shooting happened, but Duncan had left before the gunman had opened fire.

Duncan had said that before he left the practice he was approached by a man he later believed to be Hodgkinson who had asked whether Republicans or Democrats were on the baseball field.

Hodgkinson, who posted a slew of anti-Republican and anti-Trump posts on social media over the years, opened fire at the baseball practice in Alexandra, Va., injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and three others.

Hodgkinson was injured in a shootout with police and later died of his injuries, according to officials.
