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

He followed Facebook groups called "Terminate the Republican Party", "The Road To Hell Is Paved With Republicans", and "Donald Trump is not my President". He said Hodgkinson spent most of his life building homes but in recent years turned to home inspections.

"I just don't know what to tell you people", she told reporters.

"I yelled, 'Quit shooting toward the houses, '" he said.

The gunman also reportedly posted anti-Trump rhetoric on social media, sparking speculation about the shooter's possible political motivations. Here's what she said.

Hodgkinson told the YMCA on Tuesday that he wanted to cancel his membership because he was moving, the YMCA said in a statement.

"He would have been required under law to relinquish his firearm license and any weapons under his possession", Freilich said in a phone interview.

Texas Rep. Roger Williams said one of his aides, Zack Barth, was shot but was doing well and expected to recover fully.

Representative Steve Scalise, two political staffers and two Capitol Police officers sustained gunshot wounds from the rampage. The Congressman will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time. James left Belleville in March to travel to Alexandria.

"We're getting exhausted of this", he said. He always drank alone, and always drank cans of Budweiser - sometimes just one, sometimes as many as six, said Kristina Scrimshaw, a bartender at the restaurant.

She said she knew of no obvious catalyst for her husband's leaving, though she mentioned her daughter had recently moved back home with a child.

The message redirected users who wish to comment on the news about the business to "Yelp Talks" and noted any review on the page that seemed motivated by news events or did not have to do with reviews would be removed.

She agreed to speak to the press only if they would leave her property afterward, the deputy had told reporters beforehand. Bernie Sanders, who a year ago made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

An acquaintance of the suspect confirmed that he had campaigned for Sanders during the election.

Hodgkinson, 66, was a Bernie Sanders supporter and frequent critic of Republicans according to at least 26 letters he wrote to the Belleville News-Democrat.

The finger-pointing came even as lawmakers on both sides called for unity, comity and a more civil political discourse.

House Majority Whip Steven Scalise was shot in the hip. Court records show that his legal trouble started in the 1990s with arrests for resisting police and drunken driving.

In a San Bernardino classroom last April, Cedric Anderson shot his wife (and two of her students) shortly after she left him. Hodgkinson used a pocket knife to cut the friend's seat belt and punched that woman in the face. Authorities decided not to pursue those charges, according to Evanko.

Bill Schaumleffel recalled that he heard loud shots being fired outside his house, which stands about 500 feet behind Hodgkinson's home.
