Capitol Police officers at the scene Wednesday morning returned fire, wounding Hodgkinson.

His attack on a group of Congress members practicing for a baseball game left her quivering, and nearly speechless. Steve Scalise, R-La., and three others.

Scalise's trauma surgeon said Friday he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death. The hospital planned to hold a briefing on his condition later in the day Friday. Mika worked for two Michigan Republicans before becoming a lobbyist in 2008, and was volunteering to help with the practice.

Robert Becker, director of Sanders' Iowa campaign, said staff workers could not recall Hodgkinson.

Hodgkinson's social media postings included anti-conservative rants.

On Wednesday, speaking on the Senate floor, Sanders condemned the "despicable act" and added, "Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society".

Marcus says he hopes the attack will bring an end to the "vicious rhetoric that's been going on between both parties".

Hodgkinson was armed with a 7.62-caliber rifle and a 9-mm handgun. Federal investigators are working to trace his weapons to find out where they were purchased and other details about their history. The Bureau is now seeking more information about the attacker.
