CORNISH: That's NPR's Hansi Lo Wang in Belleville, Ill.

"I can show you messages and stuff that were much worse than this guy's Facebook posts", said Republican Congressman Kenny Marchant, referring to the assailant in Wednesday's shooting.

"He would just sit and stare at the Golf Channel", she said.

After getting out of a black SUV that drove down Rolling Hills Lane from the Hodgkinson home, Sue Hodgkinson stood next to a federal agent in front of a gaggle of reporters.

During the interview outside of her home, Sue Hodgkinson claimed to know nothing about the true motivation behind the trip her now-deceased husband took to Washington. James told her that he was going to Washington, D.C.to "work on taxes" and "change the tax brackets", she said. She said she thought he was going to return to IL because he'd run out of money.

"He would say "yeah I agree" or something like that", said former Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, who got to know Hodgkinson over the course of about six to eight weeks.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake added that he saw a member of Scalise's security detail return fire on the gunman for what felt like 10 minutes, even though the police officer was wounded in the leg.

He has won 11 major trophies in his time in Spain , including a LaLiga and Champions League double in the 2016-17 season. Barca's Argentine defender Javier Mascherano also agreed a one-year suspended sentence with authorities for tax fraud.

Authorities also confirm Hodgkinson legally purchased a 9 mm handgun and an assault-style rifle from licensed firearms sellers.

They've also found a cell phone, a computer and camera in a white van that the Federal Bureau of Investigation says he was living in in Alexandria since March. It was parked across from the scene of the shooting. He let his business license expire and moved to the Washington, DC area in March, where he reportedly lived out of his white cargo van and frequented the YMCA in Alexandria located next to the baseball field.

Scalise was one of the people Hodgkinson shot. We know that he had a criminal record. "He was exhausted, I guess, of the politics going on", Walsh said. And she was shocked by the news, says it was totally unexpected. And she thinks that the community here will rally to support his family. Here's what she said.

"He was the type of person that if you challenged him, he wouldn't back off", said lifelong friend Dale Walsh, 65.

Democratic leaders during Trump's presidency have never encouraged their supporters to take violent action, and all of them universally condemned Wednesday's shooting while re-affirming the need for comity in the tragedy's aftermath. And people are pretty good around here.

WANG: Well, it's a small town, and parts of it are still pretty rural. It's lots of farmland, acres of corn and soybean fields.

In 2006, he was arrested on a battery charge after allegedly punching a woman in the face, then striking her boyfriend in the head with the wooden stock of a 12-gauge shotgun before firing a round at the man, according to a sheriff's department report.
