ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The wife of Virginia gunman James Hodgkinson, who shot and wounded a top Republican lawmaker and several others this week, said on Thursday (June 16) she was shocked and could not believe why her husband carried out the shooting. "I can't believe he did this. I cannot believe it," Sue Hodgkinson told reporters in Belleville, Illinois. "I had no idea this was going to happen and I cannot wrap my head around it." James Hodgkinson opened fire at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday morning and wounded a Republican Representative Steve Scalise, a Congressional aide, a lobbyist, and a Capitol police officer before being shot himself. He later died from his wounds. Hodgkinson had written a series of strident messages against Trump and other Republicans on his Facebook account.
