LIVE UPDATES: Follow the Scalise Shooting on HOT MIC

According to the WaPo, the shooter has been identified:

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.

It's still very early in this investigation and not a lot is known, so it's always important to be cautious about information as it rolls in. Having offered that disclaimer, it appears from Hodgkinson's Facebook page that he was a Trump-hating Bernie Bro.
