What we know about suspected gunman in congressman shooting

16 June 2017

In March of 2016, a neighbor called the sheriff's department saying Hodgkinson was firing a rifle into a nearby cornfield.

"I do not know that man, nor did he take part in any (local) campaign activities that I know of", Schwartzhoff said. "I can't wrap my head around it, okay? Outside of myself, I don't think he knew anyone else in town".

The Bellevue News-Democrat reported that in 1996 his 17-year-old foster daughter committed suicide by dousing herself in petrol and setting herself alight.

St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson said that Hodgkinson showed his deputy all the necessary firearms licenses and paperwork needed for a high-powered hunting rifle.

Stephen Brennwald, an Alexandria attorney, also saw Hodgkinson at the YMCA wearing long trousers rather than gym attire, and said he often seemed to be staring into space.

Hodgkinson gave an interview in 2011 at an Occupy protest in St Louis in which he said he was exhausted of being "pushed around".

Interestingly, the screenplay was co-written by Scott Lobdell , a comic book writer best known for his work with Marvel and DC. In order to break the loop, she not only has to avoid dying - she needs to figure out just who is trying to kill her and why.

Two of Hodgkinson's victims were severely wounded.

Congressman Rodney Davis told CNN he was up at bat at the time, and Scalise was in the field at second base. "We will provide periodic updates". "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", MedStar said in a statement put out by Scalise's office. Brooks says Rep. Brad Wenstrup, a podiatrist who served as a combat surgeon in Iraq, used scissors to cut Scalise's trousers to get to his wound. Matt Mika Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, was helping with practice when he was shot.

Hodgkinson, 66, wounded House Rep. Steve Scalise before he was fatally shot by police who had been guarding the House majority whip.

The congressional staffer, who works for Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, was shot in the leg and has since been released from the hospital.

Though there are no other legal problems listed in St. Clair County, which includes Belleville, since 2011, Hodgkinson did come to the attention of local law enforcement as recently as last spring.

It drew a record attendance of 24,959 attendees. "But he's a great fighter, and he's going to be okay, we hope". The Congressional Baseball game was held on Thursday night despite gunfire at practice on Wednesday morning.

The YMCA says they never received any complaints about him, and no staff member "recalls observing inappropriate or unusual behavior by him", the statement said. "Other than that, the state can't take it away". He had, as you say, a home inspection business there.

SHAPIRO: Was there anything to indicate that he was violent?

A bartender at the Pork Barrel BBQ in Alexandria said Hodgkinson started coming in for beers about a month ago. The FBI is processing a cell phone, a computer and a camera found in the van.

All votes in the House of Representatives were cancelled for Wednesday, but the annual Congressional baseball game will go on as planned Thursday night at Nationals Park in the USA capital.

Lawmakers practicing for the annual bipartisan charity game ran for cover.
