Gunman who shot Republican congressman had history of railing against GOP

Authorities say James Hodgkinson from IL opened fire Wednesday morning on a group of republican lawmakers, as they practiced for an annual congressional baseball game in Virginia.

Mrs Hodgkinson said the separation came after their foster daughter and her daughter moved into their two-story home which is surrounded by sprawling countryside. He told her he was going to Washington DC to "change the tax brackets" and "work on taxes", she said.

The couple had been married for about 30 years. "I'm glad they took care that he didn't get to do it again", Schaumleffel said. She said he talked a lot about politics but, when pressed, said she didn't want to discuss her husband's views. Her daughter and a 2-year-old grandchild had moved in with the Hodgkinsons before that, she said, and her husband may have left because he wanted "a break from it".

"He didn't say anything. he was just shooting", said Peoples, who was about to teach an exercise class at a nearby YMCA.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said Congressman Steve Scalise is "in some trouble" as he fights to recover from a gunshot wound sustained Wednesday in the surprise attack on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington. When asked further about their living situation, she said it was a personal matter.

Suzanne Hodgkinson told reporters gathered outside her Belleville home Thursday afternoon that she "couldn't believe it" when she heard about the shooting.

Federal law enforcement said he was living out of his auto from March until June.

When asked if she wanted to say anything about the victims of the attack, she shook her head. She said he sold nearly everything from his businessese prior to leaving.

"I just don't know what to tell you people. I'm sorry that he did this but there is nothing I can do about it".

"I can't believe he did this".

On May 14, 2010, he wrote: "I don't envy the rich; I despise the way they have bought our politicians and twisted our laws to their benefit". She learned about the shootings while at work Wednesday during a telephone call from a television reporter. "I go down to the post office quite often, and he would be there collecting signatures on things he was for, and if you weren't of his opinion, he'd be very agitated", McClenahan said.
