Scalise's Shooter Appears to Have Acted Alone, FBI Says

Slater said Hodgkinson acted alone and was known to have an "anger management problem".

Scalise, who is now receiving treatment at the MedStar Hospital in Washington has undergone a series of surgeries and is said to be in fair condition.

Police officers shot and killed the gunman, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of IL.

But Carter also gave the services until July 1 to develop policies to allow people already identifying as transgender to newly join the military, if they meet physical, medical, and other standards and have been stable in their identified genders for 18 months.

The FBI was also able to piece together more of Hodgkinson's actions since he arrived in DC sometime in late March.

In April, Hodgkinson took cell phone photos and videos of various sites on the National Mall, and of several monuments including the US Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. The unit contained a laptop, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, the receipt for his 2016 rifle purchase, and other rifle components. "[He] made numerous posts on his social media accounts espousing anti-Republican views, however, those posts appear to be First Amendment-protected rights". Last Wednesday, he went to the unit at 6:23am and left it at 6:35am. The message was accompanied by a cartoon depiction of Scalise.

Tim Slater, the special agent in charge of the Washington FBI office, also said during a news conference Wednesday that James T. Hodgkinson did not have any ties to terrorism.

Mr Scalise and other congressional Republicans were practising for their annual charity baseball game against Democrats when a gunman started shooting. Hodgkinson bought the guns in April, after Trump was elected, Slater said.

"The guy was very cordial", the sheriff said. But at the time, police determined Hodgkinson hadn't violated any laws.

Hodgkinson died from injuries inflicted during the shooting.

During his time in the Washington area, Hodgkinson participated in a demonstration over tax reform on April 15, Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said.
