As WaPo notes, he has a prior record:
The shooter at the GOP congressional baseball practice this morning is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., according to law enforcement officials. Hodgkinson, 66, owns a home inspection business. His home inspection license 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. The charges were dismissed, records show.
This may be a clear example of what more than a year of vile, anti-Donald Trump propaganda pushed by the liberal media causes. This unstable liberal took matters into his own hands.
What a tragedy. God bless the Capitol police for taking swift action.
This is a breaking news story. We will have more details as they become available.
UPDATE – President Trump says that Hodgkinson died:
