Would-be gunman launched into Trump tirade before shooting

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. Scalise remained in critical condition on Friday although his condition has improved, doctors said.

The list on James Hodgkinson's notepad had the names of three GOP congressmen who are all members of the House Freedom Caucus - Reps. None of the victims injured in the attack were on the list, the law enforcement source said.

A spokeswoman for Capitol Police did not return CNN's request for comment.

John Avildsen, Oscar-winning director of 'Rocky,' dead at 81
The three Oscar nominations for " Save the Tiger " and the win for Lemmon secured Avildsen's place on the list of go-to directors. Avildsen's other films included the critically hailed drama-thriller " Joe " (1970), starring Susan Sarandon and Peter Boyle.

The Democrats won 11-2, then turned right around and gave the trophy to the Republican team to put in Scalise's office.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost (R-Ill.) at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman said, calling the emails and phone calls negative but not threatening. "I have never said 'life sucks, ' only the policies of the Republicans", he wrote in another.

The roads surrounding the Alexandria baseball field where the shooting took place remain closed as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues to search the area for any new clues, reports CBS News correspondent Chip Reid.

Facebook using artificial intelligence to counter terrorism
The company made it clear that it is serious in dealing with the issue, and terrorists should not have a voice on social media. Facebook committed to making its platform a "hostile place for terrorists" and outlined the steps they had taken to do so.

They also released photos of guns similar to the 9mm handgun and 7.62-caliber rifle used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally. A single shot left Scalise, 51, with a shattered bone in his left hip and internal injuries that caused severe bleeding.

Mrs. Hodgkinson says she was at work when she first heard the news.

Hodgkinson, who was shot by police and later died, apparently had been living out of his van in Alexandria since March.

President Donald Trump called Griner and another officer who responded to the shooting, officer David Bailey, heroes.
