James T. Hodgkinson, 66, identified by law enforcement officials as the deceased gunman who opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a Virginia baseball field, was "living out of his gym bag" in Alexandria, The Washington Post reported.
Further, Hodgkinson who was shot and mortally wounded by police during the rampage, had been at the YMCA early Wednesday before he went to the ballfield where he allegedly carried out the attack, the Post reported.
"He was a very friendly person. But what I did notice about this gentleman is he'd open up his gym bag and in it, he had everything he owned. He was living out of the gym bag. That, and he sat in the Y’s lobby for hours and hours," former Alexandria mayor Bill Euille told the Post.
