CNBC said five people were injured in the shooting, which took place at a congressional baseball practice: U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) two Capitol Police officers, a lobbyist and a congressional staffer. "He was just a very calm, rational person, I thought", he said.

She, like others who knew "Tom" Hodgkinson, as she referred to him, never dreamed his problems would lead to a potentially deadly attack.

But with James Hodgkinson named as the Alexandria shooter, the national spotlight's here.

Congressman Steve Scalise, the most seriously wounded, is in critical condition following several surgeries.

Ten years earlier, a foster daughter committed suicide by dousing herself with gasoline and setting herself on fire inside her auto, the Belleville News-Democrat reported. She said shortly before James Hodgkinson left, her "daughter just moved back home and has a 2-year-old". "But he never really implied one way or the other that he was pro-Democrat, anti-GOP Republican or anything like that". Hodgkinson, 66, was killed by return fire.

Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that Hodgkinson had apparently been among many volunteers on his 2016 campaign. When he found out the shooter was from his home district, Bost's team started searching for any previous communications.
