Doctors Upgrade Rep. Scalise's Condition To 'Serious'

Yesterday morning, police say, Hodgkinson fired dozens of bullets at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., wounding five, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. Just prior to his leaving, Sue's daughter and 2-year-old grandchild had moved back home. In a statement released Thursday morning, his family said Mika was shot in the chest and arm and suffered massive trauma, the Detroit News reports.

He was regularly spotted in recent weeks working on a computer at a YMCA - steps away from the field - and mostly kept to himself. "I responded that it was the Republican team practicing, and he proceeded to shoot Republicans", Duncan said the day of the shooting. Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was too early to determine a motive in the shooting or whether the attack was an attempted political assassination.

James Hodgkinson had a history of domestic violence and also a long list of minor offenses in his home county, most of which were tossed out, according to the AP.

"All of a sudden we heard just a very loud pop. then a few seconds later it was a rally", said Sen. But over the years, he had also had a number of scrapes with the police. A former congressional aide was hospitalized.

Charl Schwartzel part of three-way tie for midway lead in Memphis
Schwartzel should open Round 3 as the favorite given the lack of in-form players around him near the top of the leaderboard. Unfortunately for the future Hall of Famer, a triple-bogey seven on the par-4 12th hole knocked him out of contention.

The gunman who shot a top GOP congressman and several other people at a baseball practice outside the nation's capital had a long history of lashing out at Republicans and recently frightened a neighbor by firing a rifle into a field behind his IL home.

We first spoke with U.S. Representative Mike Bost, of Illinois' 12th District, of which Hodgkinson lived in. However he said the senator's description of Trump created a combustible political atmosphere, according to the Times.

Hodgkinson had taken his van to the mechanic who works two blocks from the scene of the attack. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders.

"I had no idea this was going to happen and I don't know what to say about it", she said, flanked by St Clair county chief deputy Richard Wagner. She didn't know at the time if the person who dropped to the ground had been shot or was just taking cover.

Real Madrid back's star player Ronaldo over Tax evasion
Madrid have now also offered their support to the four-time Ballon d'Or victor , believing him to be innocent of any wrongdoing. In the indictment, the prosecution alleged that Ronaldo had evaded tax "in a conscious and voluntary manner".

Euille said he even went on a website with Hodgkinson one day to try to help him find work.

The investigation into James T. Hodgkinson's life in the months and weeks leading up to his alleged attack on a congressional baseball practice is well underway, and police are asking for the public's help in both Virginia and his home state of IL.

But there were no signs of violent sentiments on his Facebook page. Bernie Sanders, who a year ago made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. And we know that the shooter was politically active.

The Belleville News-Democrat newspaper posted a photograph of Hodgkinson protesting outside a post office in 2012, wearing sunglasses and a goatee and holding a placard that read "TAX the Rich".
