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.
