Deceased, Aaron Alexis, Naval Yard, Kills 13, Including Himself

September 16, 2013 Washington DC (RT) – Aaron Alexis has been identified by police as the dead Washington Navy Yard shooter, NBC News reports.

Alexis, 34, originally of Fort Worth, Texas, recently began working at the Navy yard as a civilian contractor, the station reported. USA Today and CBS News also report that an unnamed source identified Alexis as the shooter, who was confirmed dead by police earlier today.

At least 13 people were killed — including Alexis — and more were wounded at the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters building after at least one gunman opened fire after 8:20 a.m. Monday, a Defense Department official said.

Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier said at a press conference that a Metropolitan Police officer is among those who have been shot, among other “multiple victims inside who are deceased.” There were other reports that a naval security guard was reportedly among the wounded.

The suspect was reportedly killed at that location, but few details about the death were immediately available. One other person of interest is still on the loose. He’s described as a black male, 50, with an olive military-style uniform who may be in possession of a long gun.

A third person of interest was cleared.

The FBI released a photo and description of Alexis, asking the public for any information about the deceased suspect:
