Reports are claiming the shooter at the GOP congressional baseball practice this morning is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., according to law enforcement officials.
Hodgkinson is 66 years old. He owns a home inspection business, which his license for expired in November 2016 and was not renewed, state records show.
Hodgkinson was charged in April 2006 with battery and aiding damage to a motor vehicle, according to online records in St. Clair County, Illinois. Records also indicate charges were dismissed.
UPDATE: Hodgkinson’s Facebook is loaded with anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts.
