Mannen som angrep republikanske kongresspolitikere i Alexandria, Virginia, onsdag, hadde laget en liste over republikanske politikere, melder Fox News.

The gunman who opened fire on congressmen at a Virginia baseball field on Wednesday had a list of Republican names in his pocket at the time of the incident, Fox News has confirmed.

The handwritten list was found in a van belonging to James Hodgkinson by the FBI, and the lawmakers named on the list are known to be conservative members associated with the Freedom Caucus:

Freedom Caucus er en gruppe representanter som står for noe av den samme frihetlige konservatismen som Tea Party-bevegelsen.

Politiet tror ikke at Hodgkinson hadde hjelp fra andre. men listen bekrefter at angrepet var planlagt.

News that the gunman had a list of names on him at the time of the shooting suggests that it wasn’t a random incident but instead was a premeditated attempt to kill the politicians.
