Hodgkinson, 66, used a rifle and a handgun to fire almost 60 shots at the Republican baseball team, which was practicing for the annual baseball game the next night.
A review of Hodgkinson's laptop, cellphone and camera, which yielded photographs of the U.S. Capitol, the Washington Monument, Dirksen Senate Office Building and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, appeared to reflect the timeline of a typical tourist - not a man plotting mass murder. The rifle had been modified, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. He was having marital problems, Slater said, and was running out of money around the time of the attack.
Hodgkinson was "struggling in all kinds of different ways" and was on prescription medication at the time of the shooting, according to Slater.
The storage facility's visitor log, Slater said, showed that Hodgkinson had gone there 43 times between April and June. On the day of the shooting, he went to the unit at 6:23 a.m. and left at 6:35 a.m. He rented out a storage unit where he kept more than 200 rounds of ammunition, among other belongings.

James Tom Hodskinson was a man with a plan when he went to a baseball field outside Washington and opened fire. "When the witness responded that it was a Republican event, Hodgkinson reportedly remained at the baseball field". There has been no evidence found, officials said, suggesting the gun sales were illegal. He was able to attend the annual congressional baseball game on Thursday, albeit on crutches.
Scalise, who was shot in the hip and was in a critical condition after the shooting, is now in a "fair condition" and is "beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said on Wednesday. None of the five people injured in last Wednesday's shooting, reports the Washington Post.
"Steve Scalise, like other white conservatives, may have affection for an individual black person or perhaps feel love for LGBT children and family members, while still maintaining deep animus and hostility toward both of these groups collectively", Chauncey DeVaga wrote in the article "Steve Scalise is a victim of political violence - but that does nothing to excuse his hateful politics".
The FBI had said Hodgkinson came to Alexandria in March.
