Gunman named as Aaron Alexis of Ft. Worth, TX, who was a government contractor.


From Mediaite:


“There’s only one confirmed gunman and authorities say he’s 34-year-old Aaron Alexis of Fort Worth, Texas,” Williams reported. “That he had just recently begun working as a civilian contractor for the Navy.

Williams noted that reports indicate Aaron infiltrated the highly secure facility by using the identification of a current employee of the facility who has not yet been identified.

“What his motive was is a long way from determined,” Williams continued.
