BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) – After being identified as the man who shot five people at a congressional baseball practice, FBI and police officers arrived at the Belleville home where James Hodgkinson’s was believed to have lived.
When News 4 crews arrived at the home, which is located on a private gravel road on Rolling Hills Lane, a neighbor said they hadn’t seen Hodgkinson in months but that his wife still lived at the residence.
News 4's Lauren Trager uncovered Hodgkinson's most recent contact with law enforcement officers was in March, when he was reportedly doing target practice on his property with a high-powered rifle.
Shortly after arriving, News 4’s Chris Nagus saw a woman driving a minivan arrive at the home and go inside. She later left the home with two pets.
While Nagus was outside of the home, several police officers and the FBI arrived. They did not speak to the woman who was leaving with two pets.
Around 11 a.m., FBI officials told Nagus more officers were on their way to the home.
A sign at the entrance to the property reads JTH Inspections. Hodgkinson is believed to have been a home inspector.
Barricades are currently set up on the street.
