The FBI found the Virginia shooter's storage unit, and discovered something chilling

The FBI also confirmed an account given to the news media by Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican who said that as he was leaving the practice, just minutes before the shooting, Hodgkinson had approached him and asked whether the baseball players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. He'd told a family member he was traveling to Washington without providing any additional information, said Slater.

Hodgkinson visited Sen. Bernie Sanders' office sometime between April 15 and April 26, Slater said, adding that he did not know whether Hodgkinson - an ardent Sanders supporter - met with the senator.

The bureau confirmed Hodgkinson was carrying a piece of paper with the names of six members of Congress at the time of the shooting, but "no context was included on this paper".

The FBI, which reviewed records from Hodgkinson's cellphone and laptop, released preliminary details from its ongoing probe into the shooting, piecing together Hodgkinson's whereabouts and online activity in the days and weeks leading up to the shooting.

Hodgkinson had a list of six members of Congress on him, Slater said, but there was no indication that he meant to target them.

The man who fired on GOP lawmakers at baseball practice had a list of six congressmen on him, and kept the modified rifle he used in a storage unit he often visited, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

Arab states don't seek 'regime change' in Qatar: UAE
The country's isolation is about "behavioral change" rather than regime change, he said at a press conference in Dubai . Turkey shipped suppliers and food via cargo planes to Qatar after its neighbors closed down air, land and sea routes.

The gunman visited the storage locker 43 times between April and June During that time period, he sometimes visited the unit daily, or even multiple times a day, Slater said.

He carried two weapons: a rifle and a handgun, according to Slater, who said the shooting appeared to be "more spontaneous" than planned. He was married for 30 years, and it appears that that marriage was not going so well.

"The American Hospital Association says a person is in fair condition when the vital signs are stable and within normal limits; the patient is conscious, but may be uncomfortable; and indicators are favorable". "A second document with a rough sketch of several streets in Washington, D.C. was found on Hodgkinson, however, it was not deemed to be of investigative significance".

Investigators also reviewed Hodgkinson's online searches and browsing history, revealing queries for the "2017 Republican Convention" and directions from Alexandria to his IL home on the night before the shooting. Bernie Sanders and was "in communication" with offices of his IL senators.

But Hodgkinson did bring with him an SKS rifle and a handgun. He would watch the field where the Republican baseball team had been practicing for about two months.
