Wife: Man who shot congressman wanted to work on tax policy

"I responded that it was the Republican team practicing, and he proceeded to shoot Republicans", Duncan said the day of the shooting.

Suzanne Hodgkinson was visibly shaken during the interview as she was escorted by St. Clair Deputy Chief Rick Wagner.

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point". And House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was still in critical condition Friday night.

Hodgkinson previously resided in the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, where he worked as a home inspector.

Those who knew him around Belleville have said nothing suggested he was capable of the attack on members of Congress, in spite of his often stated, very strong, and well-documented anti-Republican views.

US consumer prices slipped 0.1 percent in May
Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index edged down 0.1% last month following a small 0.2% increase in April. Receipts at restaurants and bars dipped 0.1 per cent, while sales at sporting goods and hobby stores fell 0.6 per cent.

The shooting has raised questions about lawmakers' security, renewed the nation's contentious debate over guns and drawn fresh attention to the harsh rhetoric that reflects America's political polarization. After the girl broke free, Hodgkinson followed and "started hitting her arms, pulling her hair, and started grabbing her off the bed". She said shortly before James Hodgkinson left, her "daughter just moved back home and has a 2-year-old". Even his email address was basic: hodg@att.net. She also said she didn't know exactly who was shot on Wednesday, but she is sorry that he did this. He also belonged to several anti-GOP groups on Facebook, including one called "Terminate The Republican Party".

She said she didn't necessarily consider his departure odd. He thought about asking a staffer about him but never did. What did she say?

Hodgkinson told the YMCA on Tuesday that he wanted to cancel his membership because he was moving, the YMCA said in a statement. He always drank alone, and always drank cans of Budweiser - sometimes just one, sometimes as many as six, said Kristina Scrimshaw, a bartender at the restaurant.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who was present at the shooting, commended the Capitol Police for their protection and quick response. Our social media feeds are nothing but echo chambers to which we turn to instead of getting to know people who are different than we are in real life.

The first, Wanda Ashley Stock, 17, committed suicide in 1996 by pouring gasoline on herself and setting herself on fire after a few months of living with the Hodgkinsons, the Belleville News-Democrat reports. "People say weird things all the time".
