The shooter, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson, was killed by U.S. Capitol Police officers, who were at the ball field at the time of the shooting.

One way to prevent future attacks, then, could be to take domestic violence more seriously, advocates say. Clyburn charged that Trump "is allowed to hide behind political correctness to say all kinds of things about people, and I'm a little bit sick and exhausted of people saying anything they want to say about anyone they want to say it about".

"I think it's just been a surreal atmosphere the last 24 hours, tonight was a great opportunity to come together, democrats and republicans - hugging, people were crying, this tragedy, it brings people together", Rep. Kevin Yoder (R) Kansas told CNN in an interview after the game.

"I yelled, 'Quit shooting toward the houses, '" Schaumleffel said.

It didn't take long for Washington's post-shooting talk of unity to begin fraying. "From everything we've known in our interactions with him, he never tipped off and gave any indication that he was violent in any way".

"I wish I had some kind of clue that his hate was going to turn into a shooting", said Dauberman, the mechanic.

Hodgkinson told the YMCA on Tuesday that he wanted to cancel his membership because he was moving, the YMCA said in a statement. "I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm". And the people there say, you know, despite these local splits here, locally, it doesn't divide - they don't divide them personally. Zack Barth, a congressional aide, was shot in the calf, treated and released from a hospital. Hodgkinson had been in the Virginia area since March.

In the evenings, Hodgkinson became a bit of a regular at the Pork Barrel BBQ restaurant just a few blocks from the ballfield where he opened fire. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders. But when his wife was specifically asked if politics "consumed" him, she refused to say.

For much of his adult life, the suspect lived about 90m off a rural road in a well-kept, two-storey home on the outskirts of Belleville, Illinois. He had been a volunteer in the Democratic primary campaign of Sen.

The cover photo on the profile is a group photo, and one member of the group is James Hodgkinson. Court records show that his legal trouble started in the 1990s with arrests for resisting police and drunken driving.

He was also alleged to have pointed a 12-gauge shotgun at a man who attempted to intervene in the dispute and struck him in the head with the butt of the gun, according to the report. Authorities decided not to pursue those charges, according to Evanko.

He wrote letters to the local paper's editor, took part in Occupy Wall Street protests. It wasn't 'Hey, do you mind if I used the bike?' It was like, 'Hey, you're in my way. He was banned from the program after he was apparently caught rummaging through someone's desk in search of a check, according to Mark Kern, the St. Clair County board chairman.
