Alexandria shooter's wife: "I can't wrap my head around it"

The FBI renewed its call for information for anyone-from Belleville to Washington, D.C. -may have about congressional shooter James T. Hodgkinson.

President Trump and his wife made an unscheduled visit to a Washington hospital Wednesday night to visit Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip critically wounded at a shooting in Virginia Wednesday.

Calling himself a democratic socialist on his Facebook page, Hodgkinson had bashed Republicans for their health care and pro-rich policies. They've also found a cell phone, a computer and camera in a white van that the Federal Bureau of Investigation says he was living in in Alexandria since March.

James Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois was identified as the shooter.

The FBI said authorities are speaking with people who knew Hodgkinson or who may have encountered him.

Hodgkinson was a Democrat and supporter of the presidential campaign of Sen.

He had published anti-Republican tirades in the newspaper and on social media.

Rep. Steve Scalise is still in critical condition, but his health is improving, the Congressman's surgeon said two days after Scalise was shot at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game.

May visits fire victims in hospital
With many dozens of people still unaccounted for, people have been told to brace themselves for the death toll to rise. He was trying to reach his family in Syria but he could not get connected to them due to the situation in Syria.

One of the last encounters anyone had with Hodgkinson in Belleville was March 24, near his home just outside the Belleville city limits. Brennwald thought it was odd he never saw Hodgkinson exercise or wear workout clothes and considered asking a staffer about him but never did, he said.

During the dispute, Moreland said, she jumped in a auto with her friend, but Hodgkinson opened the vehicle's door and hit her, then used a knife to cut the seat belt off his foster daughter. Two Capitol Police officers sustained relatively minor injuries.

He was arrested for domestic battery and discharge of a firearm.

Schaumleffel seemed to think the 2016 election enraged Hodgkinson: "He was getting even with whomever got into office he didn't like - he was going to take some of them out".

Sanders decried Hodgkinson's violent actions, saying he was "sickened" by the shooting.

Even more wonderful, Rep. Brooks was standing not far from the 3 base line awaiting his turn at bat as the shooter started his attack only a few yards away, in the 3 base dugout.

WANG: Later, the deputies from the local sheriff's department arrived. He was squeezing off five or six rounds at a time, according to the report of the incident, and fired about 50 shots in all.
