Illinois Man, 66, Identified as Suspect in Virginia Shooting

16 June 2017

Majority Whip Steve Scalise is facing a third surgery today, one day after police say IL gunman James Hodgkinson opened fire during a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Sanders says in a statement: "I am sickened by this despicable act". Bernie Sanders said the gunman had been among the many volunteers on his presidential campaign.

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

Charles Orear, an acquaintance of Hodgkinson's who said he campaigned with him for Sanders, told The Washington Post that Hodgkinson was a "quiet guy" who was "very mellow, very reserved".

In a news conference on Wednesday, FBI special agent in charge Tim Slater said that Hodgkinson is believed to have been living in his vehicle in Alexandria since March. He apparently volunteered for the presidential campaign of Sen.

In March, Sheriff's deputies came out to Hodgkinson's house in IL after a neighbor reported hearing 50 gunshots.

Investigators gather near the scene of a shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, on June 14, 2017.

Ball said he has sold more than 500 pairs of the ZO2 shoes, but expects sales to pick up more due to a looming deadline. Back in March, LaVar Ball made it clear that he would absolutely destroy Michael Jordan 1-on-1 back in his heyday.

"Trump is a Traitor".

A Hodgkinson acquaintance told CNN the shooter was a "kind man" who appeared to have become fed up with the politics in Washington.

"Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs counter to our most deeply held American values", he added. In a March 22 post, he wrote "It's time to destroy Trump and Co".

According to the newspaper, Hodgkinson had a number of arrests on charges including driving under the influence, resisting a peace officer and eluding police.

Harlan Hill, a New York-based political consultant and Trump supporter, said no one should blame Sanders' personally.

Asked about her husband's decision to leave for an extended period of time, Hodgkinson said that her daughter and two-year-old granddaughter had recently moved home. Brennwald thought it was odd he never saw Hodgkinson exercise or wear workout clothes and considered asking a staffer about him but never did, he said.

Hodgkinson died from his injuries in a shootout with police.

In more than two dozen letters to the editor of his local paper, Hodgkinson railed against former President George W. Bush and called for "voting all Republicans out of office".

"I'm sorry that he did this, but there's nothing I can do about it", she said.

In March, Hodgkinson met with sheriff deputies in IL after they received calls that he had fired 50 shots on his property.

The teenager's mother entered the fray, hitting her daughter, pulling her hair to get her out of the auto and threatening to put her back into foster care, the report said.

"He said, 'I understand, ' and said he needed to take the gun to a range to shoot it, Watson said". A police report states he had license to shoot the weapon and wasn't charged in the incident. Now we know where he went.
