James T. Hodgkinson, the alleged shooter at a congressional baseball practice Tuesday, died at 9:15 AM at George Washington University Hospital, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Caller.

The Daily Caller has confirmed the identity of the shooter.

Washington Post sources have identified the shooter of Republican Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), and three others as James T. Hodgkins of Belleville, Illinois.

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.
