Hodgkinson, the man who shot and wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) last Wednesday during the Republican's baseball practice, reportedly went on a long anti-Trump tirade at an auto fix shop near the ball field on the day before the shooting.
Scalise was wounded when a gunman opened fire at a GOP lawmaker baseball practice Wednesday morning.
"He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", MedStar Washington Hospital said in an email Saturday.
Hodgkinson died at the hospital Wednesday after a shootout with Scalise's security detail and the Alexandria Police Department. After Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet traveled through his pelvis, fractured bones and injured internal organs.
