Duncan's name on list found on shooter's body

Duncan's name on list found on shooter's body”

James Hodgkinson opened fire at the Congressional baseball practice on Wednesday morning, shooting four people and critically wounding majority whip Steve Scalise.

The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL who had several minor run-ins with the law in recent years and belonged to a Facebook group called "Terminate the Republican Party". High-ranking Congressman Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, was seriously injured and remains hospitalized.

She said she was married to James Hodgkinson for almost 30 years but they have not been together since March, when he moved to Washington, D.C.

As I walk across the parking lot to the vehicle, a gentleman approaches me and says, 'Can you tell me, the team today, is that Democrats or Republicans?' I told him it was the Republicans and he said, 'OK, thanks, ' and turned around. She says she learned her husband was involved when she received a call from a news reporter.

One woman I spoke to who lives in that area, Marilyn Blaha, said she knew him professionally from years ago, says her brother was still friends with him.

"He never bothered anybody that I knew of", Guetterman said, shaking his head in disbelief that someone living that close to him could do something like that.

"We started giving him the liquids, I put pressure on his wound in his hip", Brooks said. "There's nothing I could do about it".

Asked about her husband's decision to leave for an extended period of time, Hodgkinson said that her daughter and two-year-old granddaughter had recently moved home. But Slater said authorities were still working to determine a motive and had "no indication" Hodgkinson knew about the ball practice ahead of time.

The visibly shaken woman told reporters she hadn't seen her husband since he left.

"His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations", the hospital said. Two of the police officers were shot by Hodgkinson before he was fatally shot.

The FBI says the shooter's white van has been processed.

Scalise was among five people wounded in the attack, including two U.S. Capitol police officers who are being hailed as heroes. This week, we're focusing on the local connection to the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday, which was perpetrated by a 66-year-old man from Belleville.

The named congressmen are all conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus, and the list appears to confirm that the shooting was not random but a premeditated attempt to assassinate the politicians. Zack Barth, a congressional aide, was shot in the calf, treated and released from a hospital. The bureau said it had recovered a cell phone, computer, and camera in the van.
