Congressional baseball practice shooting
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he was "sickened" by the shooting at congressional Republicans' baseball practice Wednesday morning. The shooter, identified by law enforcement officials as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Illinois, was reportedly "more on the progressive side of things" and campaigned for Sanders in Iowa.
"Let me be as clear as I can be," Sanders said. "Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values."
