But in 2003, that contract was abruptly cancelled, Kern said, because of concerns about Hodgkinson's conduct.

The two team managers, Republican Representative Joe Barton and Democratic Representative Mike Doyle, both vowed that their squads would win the charity game.

One woman I spoke to who lives in that area, Marilyn Blaha, said she knew him professionally from years ago, says her brother was still friends with him. He was also a volunterr for Sen.

Investigators say they've checked Hodgkinson's laptop, cell phone, and a camera found in his van but have found no manifesto, no intent to commit violence, and nothing to indicate he was scouting potential targets.

"I know he wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff", the shooter's brother told the newspaper. They were hard to miss in the Alexandria, Virginia, neighborhood known as Del Ray where he gunned down Republicans playing baseball. 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. Officer BaileyCapitol Police Officer David Bailey received a minor injury but was not shot, according to U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa. It was only more recently that he turned his anger toward President Donald Trump. He joined a series of Facebook groups that spread biting political cartoons and nasty memes and frequently attacked the president from behind the keyboard. "It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co.", Hodgkinson wrote in a March 22 post. "Trump Has Destroyed Democracy".

"We're just not sure at this time" how he spent his time, he said.

James Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois was identified as the shooter.

"I'm sorry that he did this, but there's nothing I can do about it", she said, according to interviews posted on St. Louis television stations' websites. "There's houses over there". She did not want to discuss her husband's politics.

Hodgkinson, whose background features several run-ins with police, had a public social media presence that included staunch opposition to GOP figures, as well as support for former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Another house (with a United Nations flag and a "Proud Democrat" sign) a few blocks from the baseball diamond has a "Little Free Library", a birdhouse-shaped hutch where one can take and give books.
