Virginia's Congressman Morgan Griffith among 6 on baseball shooter's 'hit list'

Griffith says extra security may be needed

Congressman Morgan Griffith's name was on a list that authorities found with the gunman who shot five people at a Republican congressional baseball practice.

The Virginia Republican's name was one of six on the shooter's handwritten list. All are members of the house freedom caucus.

"The fact that a man was willing to shoot people, kill people if he could, has my name on a list with six others, that's a little unsettling,” Griffith said.

Some have characterized it as an "assassination list.”

It is unknown whether there will be extra security measures taken in Washington or at local district offices of congressmen, but Griffith says everyone's awareness is heightened.
