CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Law enforcement updates investigation into attack on GOP congressional baseball team.

The FBI, the Alexandria Police Department, and the U.S. Capitol Police held a press conference with a joint statement at about 5:40 p.m. ET in Alexandria, Virginia. FBI Special Agent-In-Charge Timothy Slater represented the FBI, Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown represented the Alexandria Police Department. U.S. Capitol Police Deputy Chief Fred Rogers for Chief Matthew Verderosa represented the U.S. Capitol Police.

At approximately 7:09 a.m. on June 14, the Alexandria Police Department responded to the scene at 400 East Monroe Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia. They arrived at 7:12 a.m. to shots fired in the vicinity of Eugene Simpson Stadium Park, where members of a congressional baseball team were practicing. Multiple members of Congress were present on scene; therefore, United States Capitol Police officers were also on scene.

The subject was engaged by law enforcement and shot at approximately 7:14 a.m.

Five individuals were transported by Alexandria EMS, Arlington County EMS, and U.S. Park Police helicopter to local hospitals with gunshot wounds. Those transported include a United States Capitol Police officer who is hospitalized and is reported to be in stable condition, a congressman, one congressional staffer, one lobbyist, and the subject.

A second congressman sustained minor injuries and was also transported by a medic unit.

One additional United States Capitol Police officer was transported to the hospital in a police cruiser for minor injuries and has been released.

The shooter has been identified by law enforcement as James Hodgkinson, age 66, from Belleville, Illinois. Hodgkinson was taken to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

The FBI is actively investigating Hodgkinson, to include his associates, whereabouts, social media impressions, and potential motivations. This is an active investigation that continues to unfold.

Hodgkinson was believed to have been in the Alexandria area since March 2017. Hodgkinson is believed to have lived in the area of Eastman Street, which only resolves on Google Maps to the area of Woodbridge and Minnieville, Virginia southwest of Alexandria. The FBI is asking citizens who may have had contact with Hodgkinson in the Alexandria area to come forward.

The ATF is running a trace on two weapons, including a rifle and a handgun.

The scene remains an active investigation, where law enforcement, to include the FBI Evidence Response Team, ATF, and Alexandria Police Department, are collecting evidence. In addition, the FBI Springfield and St. Louis Evidence Response Teams are searching the subject’s home in Belleville, Illinois.

Individuals who have information regarding Hodgkinson should call the FBI 24-hour access line at 1-800-CALL-FBI and select option 1.

James T. Hodgkinson, age 66, of Belleville, Illinois died at the hospital from multiple wounds to his torso, according to the medical examiner.

During a question and answer period, the FBI only answered that the suspect had one handgun and one rifle. He possessed a white cargo van.

Regarding the weapons, the FBI is concerned with where they came from, who purchased the weapons, and how Hodgkinson acquired the weapons.

The FBI is concerned with finding a motive, why Hodgkinson was here, and why he did what he did.

Deputy Chief Fred Rogers answered that the U.S. Capitol police officers were assigned a protective detail for Congressman Steve Scalise (R-La.). He said police officers were also assigned to monitor the event.
