We previously reported that a childhood friend of the Congressional Baseball shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, stated that he “wasn’t evil”. Well, now neighbors of Hodgkinson is coming forward and calling him exactly what he is… “He’s just been a radical nut.”
Hodgkinson critically wounded a Republican congressman during a shooting rampage this week, and is being described by neighbors as “obnoxious” about politics and “reckless” with firearms.
“He’s just been a radical nut,” Karmen Schaumleffel said about Hodgkinson.
“He’s been barred from all county board meetings and stuff like that. I guess he’s caused trouble in various places.”
“My husband had yelled at him because the kids were outside and everything and he didn’t stop,” she said. “He was shooting in his backyard over this way in our field.”
The neighbor added that Hodgkinson was “quite vocal” and “obnoxious” about his beliefs.
