Shooting At GOP Baseball Practice Seems To Have Been Spontaneous, FBI Says

Alexandria shooting scene from

Scalise, the Republican House Majority Whip, was critically injured during a shooting by a lone gunman at the GOP baseball team's practice for a charity game June 14. Shortly before he left his home in Belleville, Illinois, local police officers had responded to several complaints about target practice Hodgkinson had been conducting at his home, though they determined he had been breaking no laws.

During the assault at the baseball field, Hodgkinson was armed with a 7.62 mm caliber SKS rifle and a 9 mm handgun and fired about 60 rounds, Slater said. Slater said the investigation into his motive continues. Sometime between that day and April 26, he visited Sanders' office on Capitol Hill. His physicians have indicated extensive hospital treatment will be necessary, followed by a period of rehabilitation. Slater declined to say who the six members of Congress were, but previous reports have said the list included Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala.; Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.; and Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz. The laptop's search history showed Hodgkinson had searched the web for two of the lawmakers on the list, but they were "only cursory" searches, Slater said.

James Tom Hodskinson was a man with a plan when he went to a baseball field outside Washington and opened fire.

A Sanders' spokesman said Wednesday he was reviewing office records to confirm the visit. Bernie Sanders and was "in communication" with offices of his IL senators.

Slater said Hodgkinson acted alone and was known to have an "anger management problem". Neighbors called police as Hodgkinson conducted target practice on his property, but he did not violate any laws, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.
