Dead gunman was open about Bernie Sanders support on social media

Donald Trump

A government official says the suspect in the Virginia shooting that injured Rep. Steve Scalise and several others has been identified as Hodgkinson.

"I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice this morning is someone who apparently volunteered at my presidential campaign", Sanders said.

The director of Sanders' Iowa campaign says campaign staff could not recall the gunman, whose name was James T. Hodgkinson.

His domestic violence charges were dismissed, according to court records cited by the Daily Beast, but the friend said that Hodgkinson's foster daughter told her "a lot of stories that he was really bad to her" and that she said Hodgkinson was "always angry". The most serious charges (not convictions) in the records are: - 1993 charges for DUI, fleeing/attempt to elude police, and resisting/obstructing a peace officer, class A & B misdemeanors (case closed/dismissed, end of supervision) - 2006 charges for Battery/Cause Bodily Harm (2 counts), Aid/Abet damage to Motor Vehicle.

Though no other legal problems are listed in St. Clair County, which includes Belleville, since 2011, Hodgkinson did come to the attention of local law enforcement as recently as last spring.

Hodgkinson's brother Michael said he was angry over the election of Mr Trump and had travelled to Washington to protest.

"It's freaky. I don't know he got onto my site", said Lyons, who identifies as a member of the Bernie Sanders Grassroots Family Network. But he said news of the shooting came "totally out of the blue".

Hodgkinson volunteered for the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and frequently made provocative comments on his posts.

He had apparently been living in Alexandria for the past few months and reportedly told his wife he would soon be coming home because he "missed her and their dogs". The suspect, identified as James Hodgkinson, had posted abusive rants against US President Donald Trump on the Internet.

"I think it's a sad state of affairs for people to exploit a tragedy like this for their own political ends", he said.

Four others were wounded: a congressional aide, a lobbyist and two Capitol Police officers. "And let me be as clear as I can be". He said the congressman dragged himself 10 to 15 yards into the outfield to get further away from the gunman.

"People need to just stop hating, whether you're on the left or the right. they just need to stop hating people who disagree with them", Kennedy said.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky was at the scene, and said that those in the park "were like sitting ducks", Fox News reports.
