Lawmakers of all parties are decrying the heinous act of a gunman who opened fire on Wednesday on Republican lawmakers who were practicing near Washington for a charity baseball game.
According to officials briefed on the FBI investigation, the list included Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona, Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama and others who officials would not reveal. His social media pages were filled with angry rants about those taxes, Republicans, and specifically President Donald Trump, whom he called "a traitor".
Congressman Scalise supported President Trump. She certainly didn't want to talk about his political beliefs.
"Looking back with 20/20 hindsight, I can see how the guy was troubled, but at the time I thought he was working", Brennwald said.
About three minutes later, at around 7.15 a.m., the shooting began, DeSantis said. Also hurt but released from hospitals were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.
U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, a Murphysboro Republican whose 12th Congressional District covers the Belleville, Illinois, area, has said Hodgkinson contacted his offices a number of times, but none of the communication seemed threatening, according to Bost spokesman George O'Connor.
San Francisco shooting: Gunman kills 3, then shoots himself
A San Francisco police department official has identified the gunman who opened fire at a UPS warehouse in the city as Jimmy Lam. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing. "Any shooting is one shooting too many".
She said she believed he was going to return to the Metro East from Washington soon because he was out of money.
Thursday night, with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise hospitalized in critical condition, Democrat and Republican members of Congress stood together, ardently singing the National Anthem, then God Bless America. They will certainly challenge Republicans to take some action now that they themselves have become the target of a crazed gunman.
Two of Hodgkinson's victims were severely wounded. I had no idea this was going to happen and I don't know what to say about it.
The hospital said Scalise was struck by a single rifle shot to the left hip that went through his pelvis, "fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding". When asked who would win the Congressional baseball game, Congressman Brad Sherman, who is a Democrat from California, answered "America".
