From the image above ==> Alleged Violation: PC 42.12(B) MA DISCHARGE FIREARM UPDATE: NBC just broadcast this picture of navy Yard Shooter Aaron Alexis. It sure looks like the same fellow as above. Dan Riehl Adds:
If this guy had a rap sheet for firearm discharge and used fake ID, as has been reported, going to be interesting investigation. — DanRiehl (@DanRiehl) September 16, 2013
“He loved to go to temple, go to meditate in Thai and English,” the friend said. “He could do both of them.”
I guess the meditation wasn’t helping.
UPDATE: Aaron Alexis “arrested by Seattle police in 2004 for shooting out the tires of another man’s vehicle” AND according to a July 5th police report, Alexis “put unknown substance in gas tank to damage vehicle.”
UPDATE: Suspect had security clearance. He was working for an HP subcontractor called “The Experts,” refreshing equipment on the Navy Marine Corps network.
UPDATE: Suspect started out with a shotgun and accumulated more weapons from his victims.
