Mechanic on Va. shooter: 'There was so much anger'

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

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.

Hodgkinson's social media postings included anti-conservative rants.

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.

The wife of Alexandria, Va. Shooter James Hodgkinson is speaking out for the first time.

"I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center said at a news conference Friday afternoon. Duncan said he told him it was Republicans.

Hodgkinson was shot by law enforcement officers after opening fire at the early morning practice of a Republican baseball team.

Texas Rep. Roger Williams said one of his aides, Zack Barth, was shot but was doing well and expected to recover fully.

Schaumleffel never actually knew Hodgkinson said now he'd never forget the day he was out there shooting.

WANG: Well, at this point, the FBI's confirmed that the shooter used a 9-millimeter handgun and also a 7.62-caliber rifle.

Sue Hodgkinson stood unsteady and emotional as a local sheriff's deputy held her hand and led her to a bank of several microphones.

Defenders of the production say they have a First Amendment right to express their anger at Trump that way.

"He entered the room, spoke with Scalise's family, and sat by his bedside with Mrs. Trump", White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.

The gunman's brother told The New York Times that the man was upset about Trump's election and recently went to Washington to protest, but Michael Hodgkinson said he didn't know why the man stayed in the area. He always drank alone, and always drank cans of Budweiser - sometimes just one, sometimes as many as six, said Kristina Scrimshaw, a bartender at the restaurant.

Ten years earlier, a foster daughter committed suicide by dousing herself with gasoline and setting herself on fire inside her auto, the Belleville News-Democrat reported. Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that Hodgkinson had apparently been among many volunteers on his 2016 campaign.

"I wish I had some kind of clue that his hate was going to turn into a shooting", said Dauberman, the mechanic.

On Friday's St. Louis on the Air, we'll go Behind the Headlines to discuss a top news story of the week.
