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

California Congressman Moves to Impeach President Trump

As more information came out about the 66-year-old Belleville, Illinois, resident James T. Hodgkinson, a picture of who the man began to emerge. Before James Hodgkinson traveled to Virginia, he lived in the town of Belleville, Ill., near St. Louis.

Hodgkinson was spotted regularly over the past several weeks at the YMCA next to the site of the shooting, sitting with a computer in the lobby or at a table in an exercise area that looked out onto the baseball field.

The FBI said yesterday that it believed Hodgkinson was living out of his van in Alexandria.

Sue Hodgkinson said she was informed of her husband's involvement when a reporter from ABC news called just hours after the attack. Duncan said he answered that the players were Republicans, before leaving the field.

On Tuesday, Hodgkinson broke his apparent silence at the garage. Told they were GOP lawmakers, Hodgkinson walked back to his auto.

Representative Steve Scalise, two political staffers and two Capitol Police officers sustained gunshot wounds from the rampage.

In a statement, Texas Rep. Roger Williams, one of the team's coaches, said one of his staff members was shot during the incident and was receiving medical attention.

Back in IL at least one friend of Hodgkinson - who didn't give his full name - defended him, saying, "I just want to let people know he wasn't evil, that he was exhausted of some of the politics going on". Apparently, Hodgkinson failed to recognize Rep. Duncan or lost the nerve to confront him, but thankfully the Clinton, SC Congressman left the parking lots minutes before the shooting started.

Trump, who visited Scalise at the hospital on Wednesday, said Scalise was "in some trouble but he's going to be okay, we hope". He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders.

"Bobby, ' he said, 'I know him".

Rep. Ron DeSantis told Fox News he left just before the shooting.

Exasperated and seemingly at a loss to explain the shooting, she said: "I don't know anything about this".

Sue Hodgkinson spoke to reporters Thursday outside her IL home.

But there were no signs of violent sentiments on his Facebook page. Bernie Sanders, took a rifle and a pistol and dozens of rounds of ammo to Simpson Park in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday morning.

Hodgkinson also used his letters to praise the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Boston protest and expressed his disappointment about Massachusetts' own John Kerry losing the 2004 presidential election.
