Wife of James Hodgkinson: 'I Was Shocked'

Investigators have not determined the objective of the list and they are still trying to determine its meaning. Hard to imagine what else it could be, but the 66-year-old gunman was shot and killed by DC police, so he is not available to shed light on the list for us.

The three other shooting victims are recovering at Washington hospitals.

Rep. Steve Scalise, the third highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, is still in critical condition after undergoing his third surgery Thursday morning as a result of a gunshot wound to his hip.

Sue Hodgkinson said her husband left the couple's home in March to move to Washington, shortly after their adopted daughter moved back into the house with her two-year-old son. Suzanne Hodgkinson, the wife of a gunman who shot and wounded a top Republican congressman and several others, said her husband went to Washington, D.C. because he wanted to work on tax policy.

"He never bothered anybody that I knew of", Guetterman said, shaking his head in disbelief that someone living that close to him could do something like that. "I responded that it was the Republican team practicing, and he proceeded to shoot Republicans", Duncan said the day of the shooting. "There's nothing I could do about it". Republican congress members were holding their final practice before a scheduled charity baseball game in which they would face their Democratic colleagues.

Congressman Scalise was among five people wounded in the attack.

Sue spoke in front of her Belleville, Illinois home and expressed her shock at what happened.

WANG: Well, at this point, the FBI's confirmed that the shooter used a 9-millimeter handgun and also a 7.62-caliber rifle.

Salter reported from Belleville, Illinois. Apparently, Hodgkinson failed to recognize Rep. Duncan or lost the nerve to confront him, but thankfully the Clinton, SC Congressman left the parking lots minutes before the shooting started.

"Something about this guy rubbed ne the wrong way when I was purchasing a home after moving here from Mexico", the reviewer said. They said he told his wife earlier this week he was heading back to IL; he canceled his YMCA membership a day before the shooting; and had talked to a local garage about getting his van ready for the trip.
