Alexandria gunman carried list of names of members of Congress

17 June 2017

Three others were also shot and suspect James T. Hodgkinson was killed by police. At 7:10 a.m., a staff member heard gunshots and called 911.

A complaint had also been made against Hodgkinson in March this year after he fired 50 rounds into a wooded area near homes.

Hodgkinson, 66, was described in reports as a left-wing advocate who was distraught over the election and leadership of President Donald Trump. Bernie Sanders later said Hodgkinson had volunteered on his campaign, and Sanders condemned the shooting.

"I'm sorry that he did this, but there's nothing I can do about it", she said, according to interviews posted on St. Louis television stations' websites. The gunman died after being shot by a member of Scalise's security detail.

In the wake of this tragedy, all we can do is pray for the continued healing of Louisiana Congressmen Steve Scalise and give thanks that the lives of Congressmen Brooks and Palmer and so many others were spared Wednesday morning.

Local media also unearthed a 2012 photo of Hodgkinson protesting outside a downtown Belleville post office holding a sign that read, "Tax the Rich".

Duncan said he spoke with Hodgkinson briefly before the shooting, when the would-be assassin asked him in the parking lot if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats.

Hospital officials said a bullet fractured Scalise's bones and damaged internal organs.

The officials said investigators don't know what the list of names means, but members of Congress have been briefed.

"The. ways they could do that is you've ever been treated by a mental physician or in a mental hospital, or you've been convicted of a felony, or have been convicted of domestic battery", said Wagner.

"For those still wondering, he didn't hate baseball or attractive summer mornings in June", White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said in reference to this article.

Wounded U.S. Capitol Police officer David Bailey set aside one of his crutches and threw out the game's first pitch. Mrs. Hodgkinson said her husband sold nearly everything from his businesses before he moved to the east coast.

But the shooting which left four wounded may prove to be a test for Sander's progressive movement "and a moment for liberals to figure out how to balance anger at Mr. Trump with inciting violence", the Times' Yamiche Alcindor wrote.

"I don't have a message, I don't know anything about this, I can't help you all".
