The man who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice this week in Virginia had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three lawmakers, according to a person familiar with the case.

The person told the Associated Press on Saturday that investigators weren't sure of the significance of the names and didn't know whether it was a list of people he was targeting. This person was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The person did not disclose the names, but said those listed had been briefed.

Scalise's trauma surgeon said Friday that the Louisiana Republican can hope to make an “excellent recovery” even though he arrived at the hospital Wednesday at risk of imminent death.
