Gunman who shot US Congressman, aide and cops dies

A Facebook page linked to Hodgkinson lists him as the owner of JTH Inspections. Scalise and others were practicing in a quiet Washington suburb for Thursday's Congressional Baseball Game that pits Democrats against Republicans.

President Obama defended doing so after Newtown: "Are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?"

"Congressman Duncan said that it was Republicans and then he immediately turned around and went towards the field".

"Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe", Trump said before concluding.

"I saw the officer get hit, kind of slumping near the SUV", Filous said.

He paid tribute to Capitol Police for their response to the shooting, and said his "hopes and prayers" are with House GOP Whip Steve Scalise and others who were wounded.

In a press conference, President Trump announced the shooting suspect has died from his injuries.

In March, he posted an anti-Trump message that says, "Trump is a Traitor". Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy.

The gunman who opened fire this morning on Republican congressmen and staffers recently declared in a Facebook post that, "It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co".

The alleged shooter apparently volunteered for the presidential campaign of Sen. Sanders later condemned the shooting and said that he had been made aware that Hodgkinson had volunteered for his campaign.

Following the incident, the so-called Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the bombings. Baluchistan province is home to a Sunni population who form a minority in majority Shia Iran.

Hodgkinson had a history of violence. The charges were dismissed, the records show.

Scalise dragged himself off the infield leaving a trail of blood as colleagues rushed to his assistance.

Meanwhile, Scalise was wounded in the hip and had surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

In July 2012, Hodgkinson, citing MSNBC's left-leaning host Rachel Maddow, wrote that a relative handful of wealthy people are chiefly responsible for funding Republican Party campaigns and said, "We need to vote all Republicans out of Congress".

"America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this awful shooting", the President said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan's office said Scalise's wounds were not believed to be life-threatening and that a member of the security detail was also shot.

Hodgkinson engaged in a gunbattle with the Capitol Police before he was shot, dying later of his injuries.

"I told the sheriff, 'I don't know what's the matter with that guy, but he can't be shooting like that, '" he said. Scalise was listed in stable condition, according to the president.

A congressional staffer was also injured.

The Belleville News-Democrat, the local paper in the community where Hodgkinson reportedly lived, showed a photo of him holding a "Tax the Rich" sign in a protest outside a local post office.
