Who was James Hodgkinson?

Scalise was one of the people Hodgkinson shot.

"ATF has conducted traces on these weapons and has determined that both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees". Zack Barth, a congressional aide, was shot in the calf, treated and released from a hospital.

Hodgkinson, 66, was killed in a gunfight with cops and Capitol Police.

Hodgkinson compared the economic conditions of the time to those that preceded the Great Depression and excoriated Congress for not increasing the number of tax brackets and taking other tax reform measures.

"I had no idea he was going to do this.I can't wrap my head around it", Sue Hodgkinson said Thursday at an afternoon news conference outside her Belleville home.

"Five others were injured during Hodgkinson's Wednesday morning rampage at a park in Alexandria, Va. He is grateful for the fearless actions of US Capitol Police, first responders and colleagues", his office said in a statement.

Condemning the attack, Senator Sanders on Wednesday told the Senate: "I am sickened by this despicable act". "Nothing I can really put my finger on, but he was just not a pleasant person".

"I just want to let people know he wasn't evil, just exhausted of some of politics going on", a friend of Hodgkinson said. "I know he wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff", he told The New York Times.

The Democratic party had a headquarters at the hotel and the break-in was by members of the Committee to Re-elect President Nixon. Interviews with the intelligence officials could happen before the week expires, according to the Washington Post .

His Facebook page was topped by a picture of Sen.

According to his Facebook page, Hodgkinson was a fervent supporter of Sanders, the feisty independent who battled Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination previous year.

A search of online newspapers shows that Hodgkinson frequently wrote letters to his local newspaper, the Belleville News-Democrat, which published almost two dozen of them between 2010 and 2012. Hodgkinson had been angry about income inequality and conservatism.

Hodgkinson had a history of minor legal troubles dating back to the 1990s with arrests for resisting police and drunk driving. Congressman Ron DeSantis told reporters that Hodgkinson approached him and his Republican colleague Jeff Duncan before he started shooting.

All the charges were later dismissed when none of his alleged victims appeared in court, the BBC reported.

Suzanne Hodgkinson was visibly shaken during the interview as she was escorted by St. Clair Deputy Chief Rick Wagner.

According to the complaint, Hodgkinson had fired shots outside a home and punched his daughter in the face.
