Sue Hodgkinson said when he prepared to leave Illinois, James sold nearly everything he owned from his businesses.

Investigators were looking into why Hodgkinson came to the Washington, D.C. area in the first place, and how much premeditation was involved.

"I had no idea he was going to do this.I can't wrap my head around it", Sue Hodgkinson said Thursday at an afternoon news conference outside her Belleville home. She works for a tax firm, she said, and was busy in recent months.

"I know he wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff", the shooter's brother told the newspaper. Hodgkinson rarely joined in the political discussions often set off by the television in the room and never showed any signs that he was troubled, Euille said.

Following Stock's death, Hodgkinson and his wife then took in another girl in 2002, but they lost custody after he reportedly abused her, the NY Post reports.

Two of Hodgkinson's victims were severely wounded. Vice President Mike Pence earlier on Thursday said he visited MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where Scalise was being treated.

"The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding", a hospital statement said. Matt Mika Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, was helping with practice when he was shot.

While a clear motive hasn't been established, Davis said he believes the shooter was targeting the members of the baseball team.

Hodgkinson had run-ins with the law and did not appear to live a stable life before police shot and killed him during the firefight on the baseball field.

He died from injuries following a shootout with Capitol Hill police at the scene in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington, DC, on Wednesday.

Suzanne Hodgkinson was visibly shaken during the interview as she was escorted by St. Clair Deputy Chief Rick Wagner. They won't look down on the fact that he, you know, he did wrong.

"Every issue that we were working on, he was not in support of", Representative Mike Bost of IL, the Republican lawmaker who represented Hodgkins' district, said, adding that while he was always angry about the GOP agenda, he never crossed the line.

Sanders decried Hodgkinson's violent actions, saying he was "sickened" by the shooting.
