The person told The Associated Press on Saturday that investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and don't know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

He is now in serious condition, an improvement from the critical condition he was in since his first surgery on Wednesday.

"Congressman Steve Scalise is in serious condition".

Scalise was shot last Wednesday at a baseball practice field in Alexandria, Va. when an assailant opened fired on GOP lawmakers and staffers one day before the annual Congressional baseball game.

A congressman said Hodgkinson asked him whether it was the Democratic or Republican team practicing before he carried out the shooting.

Scalise was shot in the hip, and the bullet damaged bone, blood vessels and internal organs.
