UPDATE | Suspected Gunman in Capitol Shooting Identified

The gunman who opened fire at a REPUBLIKKKAN baseball game  practice in Virginia Wednesday morning has now been identified as Illinois resident James T. Hodgkinson.

Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., owns OWNED (because they puttin his ass away) a home inspection business, though his license expired in November 2016 and was not renewed, according to the Washington Post.

He was charged in April 2006 with battery and aiding damage to a car in Illinois — charges that were dismissed.

Hodgkinson allegedly used an M-4 assault rifle to shoot out as many as 60 shots at the Republikkkan lawmakers (See Here).

A Facebook page belonging to a James T. Hodgkinson displays him as a politically active man, with several photos of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and old photos of former President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

On March 22, Hodgkinson wrote in a post, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” and linked to a petition calling for the removal of President Trump.

Authorities said Hodgkinson was transported to an area hospital, but could not yet give an update on his condition.
