The Daily Caller's report did not identify the source of its information. All three are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which is a bloc of conservative House members.

CBS News reported that the note was not necessarily an "assassination list", but that it indicated Hodgkinson had recently focused on the individuals on the list. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed. But Fox News reported that it had not confirmed any names on the list.

Police investigate a shooting scene after a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress during a baseball practice near Washington in Alexandria, Virginia, June 14, 2017. It happened while Republican congressmen were practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game.

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. U.S. Capitol Police and D.C. Metropolitan Police Department also declined to comment. Among those was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who remains hospitalized after undergoing several surgeries after being shot in the hip.
