Wife: Man who shot congressman wanted to work on tax policy

Richard Wagner, chief deputy of the St. Clair County sheriff's office, said afterward that Hodgkinson was told about the shooting by a journalist and has been with the Federal Bureau of Investigation since the shooting.

Duncan said he spoke to Hodgkinson before the shooting. Hodgkinson had been in the Virginia area since March.

The wife of Virginia gunman James Hodgkinson who targeted a Republican party baseball practice match on Wednesday and critically injured GOP congressman Steve Scalise has spoken publicly for the first time about the shooting, telling reporters: "I can't believe he did this".

Five innocent people were shot in the attack, including House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise. And it was at that auto shop that his anger flared during small talk with the mechanic. Bernie Sanders. In social media posts and letters to the editor of the Belleville News-Democrat, Hodgkinson often criticized Republicans and called for higher taxes on the wealthy. And last November, Hillary Clinton beat Trump by just a few thousand votes. His voice got loud and deep.

Scalise and lobbyist Matt Mika remained in critical condition Friday; three others wounded have been released from hospitals.

Mark's profile noted that Hodgkinson's brother, Michael, told The New York Times that the alleged gunman "wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff" and that the attack was "totally out of the blue".

A reporter asked her about a rumor that her husband was planning on returning home in the coming days. Duncan told him the baseball players were Republican.

U.S. Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner was shot in the ankle and remains hospitalized in good condition, according to The Washington Post.

What was mentioned of the 2006 incident in the AOL profile was that, "court records show that Hodgkinson has been arrested on charges of battery and aiding damage to a motor vehicle in 2006".

Sue Hodgkinson stood unsteady and emotional as a local sheriff's deputy held her hand and led her to a bank of several microphones. When that woman's boyfriend confronted Hodgkinson, he struck him in the face with a shotgun before firing off a round as the man fled, a police report said.

Stock committed suicide while in her parked vehicle in Belleville, Ill.

The couple's daughter had recently moved back into the house with her young child.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said in a statement condemning all acts of violence. Even his email address was basic: hodg@att.net.

"I don't want to answer these questions about his politics", she said. And she said she had no idea what exactly he was doing while he was gone. "I think it's awful", Reis said.

He retrieved a rifle and opened fire.

"I knew he was a Democrat, a pretty hardcore one".

For much of his adult life, the suspect lived about 90m off a rural road in a well-kept, two-storey home on the outskirts of Belleville, Illinois.
