The gunman who attacked a GOP congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday morning has been identified by federal law enforcement sources as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois. Here's what we know about him so far.
Hodgkinson, who was killed in the incident, shot at least five people, including Rep. Steve Scalise (pictured), a congressional staffer and members of the congressional police.
A quick scan of Hodgkinson's social media presence -- Facebook and Twitter -- suggested that he was strongly opposed to President Donald Trump and was a supporter of the 2016 presidential candidacy of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an Independent who ran as a Democrat.
Hodgkinson was arrested in April 2006 on "suspicion of battery, domestic battery, criminal damage of property and reckless discharge of a firearm" by the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department, according to a brief report at the time in the Belleville (Illinois) News-Democrat.
Hodgkinson also had DUI, resisting arrest and fleeing charges from Jan. 7, 1993, that were dismissed after court supervision, the Belleville News-Democrat reported.
Hodgkinson also apparently volunteered for Sanders campaign in Iowa during the 2016 campaign. Sanders condemned the shooting in a statement issued Wednesday afternoon.
Jeff Weaver, Sanders' former presidential campaign manager, told CNN that Sanders' political staff was trying to get more information. He said Hodgkinson was not a staffer and had no formal role in the campaign. Weaver also noted there were thousands of Sanders volunteers across the country.
Hodgkinson's apparent Facebook profile page is an image of Sanders as "Uncle Sam" and one recent post from June 12 carries this message from Hodgkinson: "I want to say Mr. President for being an A**hole, you are Truly the Biggest A** Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office."
Hodgkinson's listed address is a rural home on the outskirts of the St. Louis suburbs, but his wife, Sue, told ABC News that he had been living in Alexandria for the past couple of months.
The Chicago Tribune reported that Hodgkinson had owned a home inspection and appraisal business, JTH Services Inc., since 1994, but state business records show he filed paperwork in January to dissolve the business.
