According to multiple reports, James T. Hodgkinson, the man who shot five people including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, reportedly had a list of other members of Congress in his pocket.

The news was first reported by the Daily Caller and has since been confirmed by NBC News.

According to the Caller‘s report, the list was written on notepad paper. Per multiple sources, the list contained the names of three Republican Congressmen.

Hodgkinson, who was shot by law enforcement personnel and died at the hospital shortly after the attack, was an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter, and a fan of progressive MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.

The assailant lived in Belleville, Illinois. According to an FBI statement released on Thursday, the Bureau is reviewing the contents of a cell phone, a camera, and a computer which were recovered from the assailant’s van.
