Shooter of Republican lawmakers a fan of leftist Sanders

Conservatives will be tempted in the days ahead to blame the left's over the top anti-Republican, anti-Trump rhetoric for the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and the others wounded in Alexandria on Wednesday.

"I never saw him get mad when people were talking good, bad or ugly about any of the political parties", Euille told The Associated Press.

In times like these, people also demonstrate humanity on social media, Kerpen noted, as some people made pleas to leave Hodgkinson's wife alone.

According to the Guardian, when she was asked if she'd like to say something to the victims, Sue Hodgkinson replied, "I don't even know who was shot".

The FBI said yesterday that it believed Hodgkinson was living out of his van in Alexandria.

"All of a sudden we heard just a very loud pop. then a few seconds later it was a rally", said Sen. "I can't wrap my head around it", Hodgkinson said.




"He was the type of person that if you challenged him, he wouldn't back off", said lifelong friend Dale Walsh, 65. Two Capitol Police officers sustained relatively minor injuries.

So far, investigators have not linked Hodgkinson to any radical groups, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

WANG: Well, at this point, the FBI's confirmed that the shooter used a 9-millimeter handgun and also a 7.62-caliber rifle. A congressional staffer was shot in the leg but was released from a hospital.

"It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co.", it said. "I know we'll be thinking about each of them as they take the field tonight". He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders.

SUZANNE HODGKINSON: I had no idea this was going to happen, and I don't know what to say about it. Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that Hodgkinson had apparently been among many volunteers on his 2016 campaign. When he found out the shooter was from his home district, Bost's team started searching for any previous communications. On Behind the Headlines on St. Louis on the Air, host Don Marsh speaks with GOP Rep. Mike Bost and Belleville-News Democrat Dana Rieck about it.

In late March, days before Hodgkinson left town, Bill Schaumleffel called the St. Clair Sheriff's Office to complain about Hodgkinson firing his rifle toward houses when his grandchildren were outside.
