Representative Steve Scalise, two political staffers and two Capitol Police officers sustained gunshot wounds from the rampage.

The FBI released the identity yesterday of the man who fired shots at the Congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, VA that left Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) critically injured.

"He wanted to go up there and work with people to change the tax brackets", she said.

One woman I spoke to who lives in that area, Marilyn Blaha, said she knew him professionally from years ago, says her brother was still friends with him. "She had no idea he felt as strong as he did", Wagner said.

But she maintained there was nothing she could have done about it.

"Tasha assumed it was because of them living there.... when your daughter returns home things kind of flip upside down, [the Hodgkinsons] were retired", explained Knepper's mother, Victoria Knepper, from her home in Saint Libory, Illinois, about 30 minutes east of Belleville. A recent post by Hodgkinson said, "Trump is a Traitor".


Investigators say they've checked Hodgkinson's laptop, cell phone, and a camera found in his van but have found no manifesto, no intent to commit violence, and nothing to indicate he was scouting potential targets.

Former Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, who chatted with Hodgkinson at the gym, said he assumed the man was homeless because he wore pretty much the same outfit every day and carried a bag full of extra clothes. She says she didn't know a lot about what her husband, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, did between January and March because she was busy with her job at a tax firm. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who from the floor of the Senate hours after the shooting said he was "sickened by this despicable act".

Hodgkinson was arrested for battery, domestic battery and discharging a firearm in April 2006. The St. Clair County Sheriff's Department responded.

"I just don't know what to tell you people", she told reporters.

James T. Hodgkinson, suspect in the shooting of congressman at a baseball game in Alexandria, Va.

Ten years earlier, a foster daughter committed suicide by dousing herself with gasoline and setting herself on fire inside her vehicle, the Belleville News-Democrat reported. He described Hodgkinson as a "quiet guy" who was "very mellow, very reserved" when they stayed overnight at a Sanders supporter's home in Rock Island, Illinois, after canvassing for the senator.
