Auto mechanic Crist Dauberman told The Associated Press on Friday that James Hodgkinson erupted into an angry, profanity-laden tirade.
The wife of a gunman who shot and wounded a top Republican congressman and several others says her husband went to Washington, D.C. because he wanted to work on tax policy.
He died from injuries following a shootout with Capitol Hill police at the scene in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington, DC, on Wednesday.
Wednesday morning, tragedy stuck at a park in Alexandria, Virginia, when a gunman opened fire on a group of congressman practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game. Hodgkinson was mortally wounded by police.
As for Scalise, he's still in critical condition, but he's improving.
Such comments can be viewed as an expression of emotions some people felt about what happened, said social media expert Dave Kerpen, author of "Likeable Social Media: How to Delight Your Customers, Create an Irresistible Brand, and Be Generally Amazing on Facebook (& Other Social Networks)".
In April 2006, Hodgkinson was charged with misdemeanor battery after he stormed into a neighbor's house in an attempt to force home a teenage girl who, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, was under the guardianship of Hodgkinson and his wife.

At the YMCA, Hodgkinson was nondescript: he always wore black trousers and golf shirts, sometimes beige, sometimes gray, sometimes black.
Stephen Brennwald, another YMCA member, said he never saw Hodgkinson talk to anyone and figured the man was a "loner". He thought about asking a staffer about the man but never did, he said.
While in Alexandria, Hodgkinson regularly visited Pork Barrel, a BBQ restaurant in Del Ray, Alexandria.
Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC said he had just left the practice and encountered the apparent gunman in the parking lot before the shooting. He always drank alone, and always drank cans of Budweiser - sometimes just one, sometimes as many as six, said Kristina Scrimshaw, a bartender at the restaurant.
On Tuesday, Hodgkinson broke his apparent silence at the garage.
