Hodgkinson Named in 2006 Affidavits

Report: Hodgkinson hit neighbor's head with shotgun before firing into air.

St. Clair County Sheriff's Department releases two affidavits involving the suspected Alexandria, Virgina shooter, James Hodgkinson.

Reports show Hodgkinson, 66, was charged in two separate incidents in April 2006.

The first report states Hodgkinson allegedly aimed a shotgun at his neighbor, hit his head with the stock of the gun and then fired a shot into the air. This reportedly took place after Hodgkinson attacked a woman inside the neighbor's home.

The affidavit states he grabbed the woman's hair and threw her down on the floor before she could escape. She got to her car where Hodgkinson reportedly opened the passenger side door, turned off the ignition, and cut her seat belt with a pocket knife. James Hodgkinson then walked away and his wife, Suzanne Hodgkinson, allegedly attacked the woman.

Authorities say they found a fired a shotgun and a knife in James Hodgkinson's possession when they arrived on scene. He was charged with two counts of battery, two counts of domestic battery, aggravated discharge of a firearm and criminal damage to motor vehicle. Suzanne Hodgkinson was also charged in the incident.

The other incident alleges Hodgkinson damaged a door in a neighbor's home. He was charged with criminal damage to property over $3,000.00.

Authorities confirm Hodgkinson died from his injuries after allegedly opening fire during a congressional baseball practice in Virginia Wednesday morning.
