Sanders Condemns Scalise Gunman Who Volunteered For His Campaign

"Once we got back to the Hill, we got word that there was a shooting".

"You've got to be kidding me", Orear said when told by phone about the shooting.

Hodgkinson was allegedly armed with a rifle when he approached the baseball field and started shooting as Republican congressmen were practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game, which raises money for charity. I am sickened by this despicable act.

While it is unknown what exactly drove Hodgkinson to open fire on a group of Republican congressmen Wednesday morning, the hyperbolic anti-Republican rhetoric which Democrats and their liberal allies have employed freely in the wake of Donald Trump's victory appears throughout his social media.

"Trump is Guilty & Should Go to Prison for Treason, " Hodgkinson wrote. Trump has destroyed our democracy. Hodgkinson wrote in a March 22 post that linked to a Change.org petition calling for the removal of Trump from office.

Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown said during a press briefing that a total of five people were transported to a local hospital in Washington DC, but did not specify whether that number included the shooter.

Northam wins Democratic nomination for governor
While he may not have the high-profile endorsements of Northam , experts say he's attracting the same group that aligned with Sen. The lieutenant governor and the former congressman have few policy differences and share a similar liberal agenda on many issues.

Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders says Hodgkinson had apparently volunteered on his presidential campaign.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge Tim Slater said it was "too early to say" whether it was an act of terrorism, or whether Scalise was targeted.

Evanko said there was nothing that stood out to him to indicate Hodgkinson would do something like Wednesday's shooting, but that he did seem like a bit of a "misanthrope" and "not terribly personable", and had an attitude of "this is how I do things and I should be able to do them my way". Hodgkinson used a pocket knife to cut the friend's seat belt and punched that woman in the face. The charges were dismissed, records show.

"We took off down the street and a Good Samaritan let us into his apartment so we could call 911 and then also call my family", he said.

"The security detail saved a lot of lives because they attacked the shooter".

Hodgkinson also had arrests in his background for a series of minor offences and at least one more serious offence. "And, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world".

The Israeli delegation to the United Nations condemned the ad and called for an investigation. The "duty station" designated for the job was "Jerusalem, Palestine (State of)".

The FBI confirms that the suspect, James T. Hodgkinson died from multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.

He said he had spoken with Mr Scalise's wife, Jennifer, and pledged his support.

"Please pray for my colleagues", Duncan said. "We are with her and with the entire Scalise family".

"Steve Scalise was on second base fielding balls". Zach Barth, a legislative correspondent in the office of Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, was injured as well as Matt Mika, the director of government relations at Tyson Foods.

Hodgkinson participated in a 2012 Belleville protest against income inequality, where he said he was part of the "99%", according to the Belleville News-Democrat.
