After the shooting, back to bickering at White House, Congress

After the shooting, back to bickering at White House, Congress

Majority Whip Steve Scalise is facing a third surgery today, one day after police say IL gunman James Hodgkinson opened fire during a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

Handwritten on notepad paper, the list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, anonymous sources told the Daily Caller. Bill Euille, former mayor of Alexandria (Va.), speaks about James Hodgkinson, whom he knew from the YMCA, on Wednesday June 14, 2017, in Alexandria, Va. Police say that Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican lawmakers as they pra.

Mr Steve Scalise, the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, was in critical condition after surgery for a bullet wound to the hip.

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.

Though no other legal problems are listed in St. Clair County, which includes Belleville, since 2011, Hodgkinson did come to the attention of local law enforcement as recently as last spring.

Over the course of Thursday's news conference, Hodgkinson did not wish to discuss her husband's politics and asked reporters to leave her neighbors and family alone.

Hodgkinson, who was shot by police and later died, apparently had been living out of his van in Alexandria since March.

Cavaliers vs. Warriors, Game 3
Broke the record of 14 straight postseason wins held by the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins, who did it twice. Including the loss in Game 3 , Cleveland is 3-7 SU and ATS in its last 10 games as a home underdog.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said Wednesday.

James Hodgkinson, 66, disappeared from the downstate community earlier this year, authorities say. Lobbyist Matt Mika was upgraded Thursday afternoon from critical to serious, according to a statement from George Washington University Hospital where he had been taken. The rhetoric strikes me as a normal and expected part of democracy, i.e. tough talk from both sides. Also hurt but released from hospitals were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

People who knew Hodgkinson "seemed like a normal guy, a regular guy".

Hodgkinson was armed with a 7.62-caliber rifle and a 9-mm handgun. Federal investigators are working to trace his weapons to find out where they were purchased and other details about their history.

She said her husband, who had worked in the building trades and as a home inspector, had sold "almost everything he owned from his businesses" and had gone to Washington.

Others say things like this just don't happen where they are from.

Dozens of reporters have been stationed outside Hodgkinson's two-storey house on the outskirts of Belleville since he was first named in media reports on Wednesday morning.
