ABC News is running this mug shot of James Hodgkins, the shooter who shot up the Republican baseball practice in Arlington, Virginia on Wednesday.
Some are raising the question of why the photo shows two different 5-foot marks.
The undated mug shot of Hodgkins was taken by the St. Clair County. IL Sheriff's Department. He had a record of various petty offenses.
I spoke to a booking officer at the Department and he tells me that the background where the mug shots are taken by the Department has separate markers at the five-foot level and the five and 1/2 foot level and he surmised that the 1/2 foot indicator was cropped out of the photo.
