James T Hodgkinson, 66, died after a shootout with police on Wednesday after he opened fire at a sports field in Alexandria, Virginia, where Republican lawmakers and their aides were training for a charity baseball game. Mo Brooks of Alabama, Jeff Duncan of SC and Trent Franks of Arizona, The Daily Caller reported. She said her estranged husband had sold nearly everything from his business before leaving. Scalise remains in critical condition, though doctors said Friday his vital signs have stabilized. He also had an active presence on social media, including posts that Reuters described as "raged against Republican U.S. President Donald Trump".

Scalise was one of the people Hodgkinson shot.
