Belleville Ill. Officials said Hodgkinson has been identified as the man who opened fire on Republican lawmakers

Suzanne Hodgkinson, who spoke to the press at her home Thursday afternoon, said she had "no idea" her husband was going to shoot at people during a practice for a congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia. He says Hodgkinson told him Trump screwed up the nation "more than anyone in the history of this country". "On the third or fourth day, as I was sitting there having my coffee. we greeted each other and exchanged names". It was unclear how or why he made his way to Virginia.

"There's just no way that I would have guessed that this guy would be shooting at law enforcement and a congressman", said Brennwald, an attorney. President Trump said we should unite on this, and he's right.

O'Connor said there's nothing to suggest that Bost was a target. 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. He complained about the prices.

Until a year ago, when his license expired, Hodgkinson ran a home inspection business. She certainly didn't want to talk about his political beliefs.

"If he was on his laptop and he came across something that was amusing or a joke, he would say 'Hey Bill!"

MARILYN BLAHA: I think it kind of brings people together if anything, you know? He had access to the facility on Wednesday, and arrived less than two hours before the shooting, the YMCA said in a statement. That was Hodgkinson back in 2011 at an "Occupy Wall Street" protest.

"I didn't sense anything ill about him".

"Fifty (shots) would be an understatement, I'm quite sure", Flake said when asked about the total amount of gunfire, including police returning fire.

Hodgkinson is accused of shooting at several members of the Republican baseball team that was practicing this week for the annual congressional baseball game played for charity. "He had them sitting out on the table. and he would say 'Hey please join and have a pastry".

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that it continues to process evidence and "to assess the potential motivations of the single shooter".

Capitol Police officers at the scene Wednesday morning returned fire, wounding Hodgkinson.

The investigation is focused on IL and the scene of the attack in Virginia.
