Dems, Republicans unite to honor shooting victims at charity ballgame

The firearms recovered after a gunman opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice and injured five people in Alexandria, Virginia, appear to have been purchased legally, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other authorities said Thursday. Scalise is in critical condition. Instead, it focuses on some of the shooter's run-ins with the police, and his reputation among people who knew him.

The FBI has swarmed the IL home of James Hodgkinson, combing through evidence trying to understand what could've led the 66-year-old man to the shooting rampage at a Republican congressional baseball practice.

"He was in a few fights and stuff like that, nothing would demonstrate violence as far as what he did", a friend of Hodgkinson said.

Scottie Scheffler, who just finished his junior year at Texas, had a 69 and amateur Cameron Champ had a 70 in his U.S. After hitting his drive into the rough on the 17th hole, Hadwin did well to get his second shot up by the green.

Sanders said in a statement Wednesday that he was aware Hodgkinson had volunteered for his presidential campaign.

This region's Republican legislators issued statements Wednesday offering prayers for the victims. He thought about asking a staffer about him but never did. "Today, the entire Capitol Hill community mourns the impact of this horrific tragedy". Three others, a GOP congressional aide, a U.S. capitol police officer and a lobbyist were also injured by gunfire. "This is so bad".

His Facebook posts attacked the president, including one stating, "Trump is guilty and should go to prison for treason".

Rep. Trent Franks told Kate Bolduan on "Erin Burnett OutFront" that he has also been contacted by Capitol Police. Hodgkinson, 66, was killed by return fire.

The FBI said it was investigating the shooter's "activities and social media impressions" in the months leading up to the attack. The congressman will require more surgeries and will be in the hospital for "presumably weeks", Sava said.

In 2006, he was arrested for battery after allegedly punching a young woman in the face and striking and choking another individual. Records indicate he has not been involved in any legal cases since 2011.

Before Hodgkinson emerged from a black SUV that had been parked outside the family home for much of the afternoon, Wagner, the sheriff's deputy, said, "She wants this to end. she's scared to death".

Duncan said he spoke with Hodgkinson briefly before the shooting, when the would-be assassin asked him in the parking lot if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. Among other things, Hodgkinson said Trump had screwed up the country "more than anyone in the history of this country". Officials said Hodgkinson has been identified as the man who opened fire on Republican lawm. "When you dehumanize people you make this an acceptable means of political protest". We can hopefully all agree that there is nothing more devastating in life than the loss of life - especially when that loss is sudden, cut short, tragic, or at the hands of a deranged person with an assault rifle.

He also wrote about conservative talk radio and TV, saying that his favorite show was Rachel Maddow's MSNBC program and writing that he believed MSNBC provided "a better, balanced opinion", than Fox News.
