Also not mentioned: The Daily Beast reported that, when she heard the news of Hodgkinson's alleged attack on June 14, Moreland said: "It sounds really terrible, but I'm not surprised". He had access to the facility on Wednesday, and arrived less than two hours before the shooting, the YMCA said in a statement. He lashed out against President Donald Trump on his own Facebook account and, according to many accounts, expressed anger against Republicans.

James Hodgkinson and his wife Suzanne brought Wanda Ashley Stock into their home back in the summer of 1996, enrolling the young girl at the nearby Belleville East High School.

The gunman's brother, Mr Michael Hodgkinson, said: "I know he wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff". Two members of the Capitol Police, Crystal Griner and David Bailey, were also wounded. Hodgkinson moved from Belleville to Alexandria, Virginia, not long after Schaumleffel's "shots fired" call, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported. But Slater said authorities were still working to determine a motive and had "no indication" Hodgkinson knew about the ball practice ahead of time. Among them was Mike Mika of Tyson Foods, and Zack Barth, a staffer for Texas Rep. Roger Williams. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders. He had been a volunteer in the Democratic primary campaign of Sen.

"The guy's down to a handgun, he dropped his rifle, they shoot him, I go over there, they put him in handcuffs", Conaway said, adding that if the shooter had "gotten inside the fence, where a bunch of guys were holed up in the dugout, it would have been like shooting fish in a barrel".

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 hospital said Scalise was struck by a single rifle shot to the left hip that went through his pelvis, "fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding".

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

Kurds' role cited in Iran attacks
The ministry announced on Friday it had caught more than 41 suspects in connection to the Tehran attacks across the country. A senior official, who also asked not to be named, said the attacks would push Iran toward "a harsher regional policy".

"I am sickened by this despicable act, and let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms", the Vermont senator said. Court records show that his legal trouble started in the 1990s with arrests for resisting police and drunken driving.

Hodgkinson was interviewed at an "Occupy" rally in 2011 in St. Louis by a local news station. Hodgkinson used a pocket knife to cut the friend's seat belt and punched that woman in the face. Battery charges against Hodgkinson and his wife were later dismissed.

That's when Bill Schaumleffel recalled hearing shots being fired outside his house, which stands about 500 feet behind Hodgkinson's home.

Reports say the event was odd because the attack was sudden and unprovoked.

"This is a powder keg right now, so everyone in authority has to be very careful with the words the say", said Nina Turner, a former Democratic state senator from OH and a high-profile Sanders supporter. No charges were filed.
