12 dead as shooter goes on rampage at DC Navy Yard
Washington DC went into lock-down earlier today as a 34-year old Aaron Alexis, a 34-year-old military contractor from Texas, opened fire gunning down 12 innocent victims before he was killed.
Local authorities are still piecing details together, asking the public for an assistance and possibly looking for a second shooter, that is still on the run. “No piece of information is too small,” said Valerie Parlave, assistant director in charge of the Washington FBI Field Office. “We are looking to learn everything we can about his recent movements, his contacts and associates.”
Alexis was armed with an AR-15, which is a semi-automatic rifle; another rifle and a semi-automatic Glock handgun, according to a law enforcement official.
