Wife: Man who shot congressman wanted to work on tax policy

Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising ticket sales

Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising ticket sales

Bailey is a 2007 graduate of North Carolina Central University, the school said.

The shooting of Republican House Whip Steve Scalise likely will test Sen.

Richard Wagner, chief deputy of the St. Clair County, Ill., Sheriff's Dept., said there was nothing in Hodgkinson's record that would prevent him from legally owning firearms in IL.

Spicer said Trump would not attend Thursday's congressional baseball game, which Scalise and others had been practicing for when he was shot, out of security and logistical concerns.

Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, was shot dead by Capitol Police after he opened fire on congressmen Wednesday in Alexandria, Va.

"This man was just so passionate and hateful toward (President Donald) Trump", said Crist Dauberman, recounting Hodgkinson's profanity-laden tirade.

According to the FBI, Hodgkinson began shooting at around 7:09 AM EST on June 14 and officers arrived at approximately 7:12 AM and the suspect was engaged by law enforcement at 7:14 AM. Officials said Hodgkinson has been identified as the man who opened fire on Republican lawm. But former Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille said Hodgkinson rarely joined in political discussions at the gym. "We had policemen and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation in here asking questions, but we just don't know him".

"I yelled to him and I said, 'Hey, what the hell are you doing, stop the shooting", one neighbor said.

"It is a passive justification for the kind of violence we saw", Hill said. It was written on notepad paper and had the names of at least three Republican congressmen on it, including representative Jeff Duncan, who spoke with Hodgkinson before the attack. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful". Staffer Zack BarthZack Barth, a legislative correspondent for Austin Congressman Roger Williams, was shot in the calf. "I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm", he said.

The FBI said the shooter's white van has been processed.

"We're just not sure at this time" how he spent his time, he said. The couple had been married nearly 30 years when he left for D.C., where he lived out of a van on a block that bordered the field where he staged the attack. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", he said. "I don't know, maybe he came for the WiFi", Russell added.

Sue Hodgkinson talked with reporters briefly in Belleville, Illinois, on Thursday - in part to ask the media to stop disrupting the neighborhood.

Hodgkinson's Facebook profile featured a cover photo of Sanders, a United States senator from Vermont who lost to Hillary Clinton in his bid to be the Democratic Party's presidential candidate in 2016. Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that Hodgkinson had apparently been among many volunteers on his 2016 campaign.

Officials also said he had a history of run-ins with the law, including arrests for battery and drunken driving. He had run out of money, his wife told reporters.

Later that year, the charges were dismissed The Advocate reports.

Hodgkinson was interviewed at an "Occupy" rally in 2011 in St. Louis by a local news station.

Schaumleffel reported hearing about 50 shots.
