She and her husband were not on the best terms, she told reporters outside her home on Thursday afternoon, but said she did not want to comment on her husband's political views.

"I just don't know what to tell you people".

Hodgkinson, who was shot by police and later died of his wounds, bought the 7.62 caliber rifle and the 9 mm handgun that were recovered at the scene of the shooting from federally licensed gun dealers. "I'm glad they took care that he didn't get to do it again", Schaumleffel said.

Hodgkinson, who had been married to her husband for nearly 30 years, said he had "made preparations to leave" by "selling nearly everything he owned from his business".

Sue Hodgkinson talked with reporters briefly in Belleville, Illinois, on Thursday - in part to ask the media to stop disrupting the neighborhood. She was flanked by a local county deputy when standing in front of a plethora of microphones.

While trying to drive away from that confrontation, the report said, Hodgkinson used a pocket knife to cut a seat belt.

Hodgkinson owned a home inspection business, which he dissolved on January 10, according to Secretary of State corporate records.

Four people - including Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip from Louisiana, who was shot in the hip - were wounded in the shooting.

Sue added that she is exhausted of the media frenzy surrounding the shooting, specifically media members who have been camped outside her home. Hodgkinson moved from Belleville to Alexandria, Virginia, not long after Schaumleffel's "shots fired" call, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported.

She was at work at the tax firm in Belleville when she first heard her husband was the suspected shooter, from an ABC reporter who called her, she said. Just prior to his leaving, Sue's daughter and 2-year-old grandchild had moved back home.

"There's just no way that I would have guessed that this guy would be shooting at law enforcement and a congressman", said Brennwald, an attorney.

James Hodgkinson was expected home soon because he had run out of money.

Sue spoke in front of her Belleville, Illinois home and expressed her shock at what happened.

"I know he wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff", the shooter's brother told the newspaper. "I don't even know who was shot", she said, "I'm sorry that he did this but there's nothing I can do about it".
