Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector and activist who volunteered on the presidential campaign of Sen. He told her he was going to Washington DC to "change the tax brackets" and "work on taxes", she said. In 2006, Hodgkinson was "observed throwing" his daughter "around the bedroom", a police report said.

Two of Hodgkinson's victims were severely wounded. At the request of the family, we will continue to provide periodic updates. Scalise remained in critical condition on Friday although his condition has improved, doctors said.
