Neighbor Fred Widel talks about James T. Hodgkinson, of Belleville, the Alexandria congressional shooter.

One of the people shot by Belleville congressional shooter James Hodgkinson will be on “60 Minutes” on Sunday.

It will be the first time Rep. Steve Scalise has spoken publicly since the June shooting, in which Hodgkinson opened fire at a congressional baseball practice. Hodgkinson shot two Capital police officers, a congressional staffer and a lobbyist, as well as Scalise. Hodgkinson was killed in the June 14 shootings.

On Thursday morning, The Associated Press reported Scalise was back on Capitol Hill, voting on legislation for the first time since the attack by Scalise.

Norah O’Donnell’s interview with recovering House Majority Whip Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana, will air at 7:30 p.m. Sunday on CBS.

Suzanne Hodgkinson came out of her home near Belleville, IL, to talk to the media about her husband, James "Tom" Hodgkinson. She had no clue he wanted to shoot members of Congress. She also thought he was coming home after running out of money.
