Navy Yard killer identified?

posted at 4:01 pm on September 16, 2013 by Allahpundit

I’m going to trust Pete Williams on this, partly because he was the most reliable reporter during the Boston bombings and partly because other outlets like Fox News are confident enough that they’re reporting the same name.

SWAT officers swarmed the building, the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command, and a shooter there was killed, sources told NBC News. Law enforcement officials identified the gunman to NBC News as Aaron Alexis, 34, originally of Fort Worth, Texas. They said he recently began working as a civilian contractor.

Chief Cathy Lanier said at mid-afternoon that as many as two other suspects could be at large, both seen with firearms and wearing military-style uniforms. Minutes later, police said on Twitter that one of the two had been identified and was not a suspect or person of interest…

Terrie Durham, who works at the Naval Sea Systems Command building, said she saw a gunman who appeared to be wearing dark fatigues.

Cops think Alexis used the ID of someone who used to work at the Navy Yard to gain access. How he got that ID is unclear. Maybe that’s where the Rollie Chance reports came from. We’ll see. Per NBC Washington, though, cops increasingly believe that Alexis was the only shooter because the paths taken through the building by the two other suspected gunmen didn’t leave carnage in their wake. One of the other possible shooters was ID’d as a white man in a tan outfit, but he’s now been eliminated as a suspect. I assume he was probably just an MP with his gun out whom someone saw from a distance and couldn’t tell if he was friend or foe.

Another interesting detail from NBC Washington, which is sadly relevant to the new national conversation on guns we’ll soon be having at the Democrats’ and the media’s urging:

Video also shows the gunman entered with a shotgun, News4′s Jackie Bensen reported. He shot the security guard and continued through the building, but according to what witnesses are telling investigators, by the time the shootings ended, the gunman was seen with a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle.

Authorities are investigating whether the gunman took the security guard’s service weapon – likely a 9 mm pistol – and hid in wait for the first responding D.C. police officers, who would be specially armed with AR-15s, then opened fire and shot one of the D.C. police officers in the legs. It’s unclear if the other officers assisting the wounded officer also were able to retrieve his AR-15.

The death toll right now is 11, plus Alexis. People have been e-mailing us a link to a Texas website with a mugshot of a guy named Aaron Alexis from 2010, but after knocking CBS and NBC for identifying the wrong man earlier, I’ll hold off on posting that for now. Look for an update here in case it’s confirmed. As of 4 p.m. ET, there still appears to be no firm clues about his motive.

Update: That was fast. Via Mediaite, NBC Washington says the Aaron Alexis arrested in 2010 — but ultimately not charged — for discharging a weapon is the same guy who went berserk at the Navy Yard.

Update: The FBI is seeking information about Alexis.

“He lived with me three years,” a Texas man named Nutpisit Suthamtewakul told the Star-Telegram, calling Alexis his “best friend.” He said Alexis had been working for a computer contractor. “I don’t think he’d do this,” said Suthamtewakul. “He has a gun but I don’t think he’s that stupid. He didn’t seem aggressive to me.”

Repost:

If the shooter confiscated the 9mm pistol and AR15 he supposedly had from law enforcement officials he supposedly shot, what does this say about Joe “Just Two Blasts Through the Door!” Biden’s advice about keeping one’s self safe from violent attack? Because if all of the above is true this man brought nothing but a shotgun, and even those equipped with super scary banana clips (20 or 30 round magazines) couldn’t stop him at first. I’m starting to think the only thing that will keep me safe in this world is an electric gatling gun that I can shoot into the air a la Biden style. Two shotgun blasts into the door/air ain’t gonna cut it.

cmsinaz on September 16, 2013 at 4:17 PM

Another interesting detail from NBC Washington, which is sadly relevant to the new national conversation on guns we’ll soon be having at the Democrats’ and the media’s urging…AR-15…

The Heller decision said that ‘dangerous and unusual weapons which are not in the common usage’ can be regulated or banned by the government. It said that there was an individual right to bear arms; the Second Amendment ‘extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding,’ (p 8); the handgun bans ‘amounted to a prohibition of an ENTIRE CLASS OF ‘ARMS’ that is overwhelmingly chosen by American society for that lawful purpose.’

Thus, it ruled invalid the District’s requirement ‘that firearms in the home be rendered and kept inoperable at all times,’ noting that doing so ‘makes it impossible for citizens to use them for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.’ (The holding in Heller was applied to the states in McDonald v City of Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010).)

Dangerous:

The AR-15 is the #1 rifle sold in the United States. It is no more dangerous than handguns. In fact, it kills FAR less. In 2011, 72.5% of all gun-related homicides were committed using handguns. In 2011, 3.8% (323) of ALL gun-related homicides in 2011 committed with rifles of ALL KINDS, INCLUDING ‘ASSAULT RIFLES’ LIKE AR-15s.

Unusual:

There is NOTHING unusual about AR-15-style rifles…unless one is afraid of black, skeery, plastic thingies.

Don’t believe me? Then, look at the pictures of these two guns and ask yourself, ‘Does one really look that much more ‘dangerous, unusual and uncommon’ than the other?’

Both are AR-15-pattern rifles that came off the same assembly line, fire the exact same ammunition, and use the same magazines….BUT the rifle on the bottom has a small bit of metal under the front sight to which a bayonet could attach and a small vented tube on the end of the barrel that redirects unburned gases.

Uncommon:

Really? AR-15s are uncommon? Since when?

In 2009, it was estimated that there were 3,261,725 of AR-15s – alone, not just AR-15-style – in the United States.

In 2009, the homicide rate was 5.0.

In contrast, in 1994 when the original Assault Weapons Ban went into effect, there were approximately 1.5 million AR-15s in the United States.

In 1994, the homicide rate was 9.0.

More than likely – the media will turn this guy into a hero … a downtrodden, poor black man who couldn’t make ends meet, loses his job when those NASTY REPUBLICANS insisted on budget cuts!

I’m still not sure how they’re going to play the shotgun angle though – if home boy only marched in with Joe Biden’s firearm of choice – it’ll be hard to pin this on semi-automatic weapons.

It’s the sequester!

No, he’s black. So that “Tea Party Made Him Do It” meme that the media loves to beat to death won’t be used here. It’s just too inconceivable that a black man would be a member of the Tea Party.

More than likely – the media will turn this guy into a hero … a downtrodden, poor black man who couldn’t make ends meet, loses his job when those NASTY REPUBLICANS insisted on budget cuts!

I’m still not sure how they’re going to play the shotgun angle though – if home boy only marched in with Joe Biden’s firearm of choice – it’ll be hard to pin this on semi-automatic weapons.

I’m sure one of the idiots in the media will think of something though.

Possible motive for the shooting?

NotCoach on September 16, 2013 at 4:41 PM

The FBI is seeking information about Alexis.

All you need to know is that he lived in TX for a couple of years.

I’m just sayin’

also:
Columbine HS – gun free zone
VA Tech – gun free zone

On the other hand:
New Life Church (Colorado Springs, CO) – NOT a gun free zone – and only 2 died (in the parking lot) because an armed church member took the shooter down in the entry lobby.

He did it for trayvon
/Hussein’s media

burrata

And per the logic of the Sharptons of the world, since the shooter was killed, somebody needs to be punished for it.

xblade on September 16, 2013 at 4:43 PM

4:26pm – The FBI has officially identified the dead shooter as Aaron Alexis and and posted his photo. The FBI is looking for any information on the shooter; “No information is too small.”

So the FBI confirms it, and posts his photo. Will the MSM follow suit, or continue to deny their audiences a picture to go with the name?

NotCoach on September 16, 2013 at 4:44 PM

I operate on the assumption that if the truth of this thing is inconvenient to the progs, then we’ll never know the truth. The dearth of information always gives me pause. I just figure the prog spin masters and their media co-conspirators are working out their storyline. It’s terrible, really. I just assume the government will lie to me when stuff like this goes does unless they can quickly blame it on an NRA member/Tea Partier/conservative.
