More breaking developments on the Naval Yard Shooter......
I watched HLN earlier, not that that means it's gospel, but they claim they had confirmed reports that this gunman, Navy shooter Aaron Alexis first entered the facility with a gun he purchased LEGALLY ?? Subsequently, he disarmed two armed guards and kills them, then proceeds to use his two extra weapons to ambush the rest inside.
Is it me, or does there seem to be a mountain of fail surrounding this whole tragic incident?
Officials: Gunman treated for mental health issues
Did my best to bypass all the stupid opinionated blogs disguised as news to get the closest to accurate account of what happened on 09/16/2013 at the DC NAVAL YARD.
Latest update from a couple different, yet pretty credible sources:
13 Dead including the shooter.
3 (one an LEO) suffered non fatal Injuries, but are expected to make a full recovery.
5 sustained minor injuries not related to the gunfire.
Shooters Name: Aaron Alexa 34 originally from Bed-Stye Brooklyn, NY where his parents still reside. He practiced Meditation,Buddhism, spoke a little Thai and often complained about being discriminated against by his Naval Commander. Some believed he suffered PTSD during his rescue efforts at Ground Zero? Uh, ok....? Alexis had a prior disorderly persons arrest and was involved in other gun incidents including shooting property-charges dropped. It's been alleged that Alexis was properly vetted to work at the facility and even received two Security clearances recently. Uh, who's doing the vetting there?.
Deceased Victims Names: (6 names released as LE works tirelessly to make proper contact with the 6 other victims next of kin) 13th dead is the suspect, Aaron Alexis.
Michael Arnold, 59
Sylvia Frasier, 53
Kathy Gaarde, 62
John Roger Johnson, 73
Frank Kohler, 50
Kenneth Bernard Proctor, 46
Vishnu Pandit, 61.
One source says that all but two of the victims were ambushed in the cafeteria.
A senseless, immoral act of violence by a gutless POS.
May God bless the souls of the innocent victims.
Thanks for the update, Bill. Looks like the tip of an ugly iceberg.
says 12 people shot with 6 dead, maybe two other shooters other then the one that has been shot.
Oh, and excuse the headline typo!
