Ed Cannon, the Navy's director of fleet and family readiness program, said the service deployed its special psychiatric rapid intervention team to provide assistance to employees who survived the tragedy at the Navy Yard.
In the wake of the shooting in which 12 civilian and contract employees were gunned down at the Washington Navy Yard Monday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered a review of security procedures at all Defense Department bases worldwide.
In an effort to reduce costs, officials at the Navy put in place a system for granting contractors access to installations that ended up allowing as many as 52 convicted felons access to bases, according to a Defense Department inspector general report released Tuesday. The IG found the system, called Rapidgate, failed to comply with federal standards and that background checks were conducted using only publicly accessible databases. The security of Navy installations was thrown into the spotlight Monday after 34-year-old contractor Aaron Alexis entered the Washington Navy Yard Monday morning where he shot and killed 12 people.
Thirteen people are dead and more are injured after a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard Monday morning. The shooter, who was killed during the incident, has been identified as Aaron Alexis of Texas.
A profile is emerging of Aaron Alexis, the man identified as the lone gunman in the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., that left 13 people dead Monday, including the shooter himself. Alexis was a former Navy reservist, a Defense Department contractor, a convert to Buddhism and a student of aeronautics. But he also had flashes of temper that led to run-ins with police in Fort Worth, Texas, and Seattle.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation said that 34-year-old Aaron Alexis used a valid pass to enter the Navy Yard premises Monday. Alexis worked for The Experts, a subcontractor on an HP Enterprise Services contract to refresh equipment used on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet network. He was able to obtain a valid pass to the Navy Yard through his work as a contractor.
