More info here:

Lanier said authorities have “multiple” pieces of information indicating there could have been more shooters. She police were searching for a black man between 40 and 50 years old wearing an olive drab military-style uniform and carrying a long gun, Lanier said.

A federal law enforcement official said police killed Alexis, who was armed with an AR-15, a shotgun and a handgun. The federal official, who requested anonymity due to the fluid nature of the investigation, said there is no evidence that anyone other than the dead gunman fired weapons in the attack. The official said investigators were analyzing surveillance video of the shooting.

Aaron Alexis, the shooter, is from Fort Worth and guy said he lived not far from the military air base there. That is close to you - did Alexis live in your neighborhood??? :o)

Agree

I would also suggest he was motivated by the Presidents original position (Military strike) on Syria.

Guns disappear.

What was it that took him from Ft. Worth to the DC area in 3 years (and possibly in violation of his court agreement in FW)?

They had stolen ID’s so you can bet those people are dead too. Probably got the guns from them. Multiple shooters doesn’t sound like “Work Place Violence” either. Especially on what is sure to be a one way trip.

I read on a different thread he was arrested, DA declined to prosecute. Shot a hole through his ceiling into the upstairs apartment, said it was an accident while cleaning.

Forget it! Brian Ross has already announced the shooter as a Dubuque, Iowa white man, A. Alexis who runs the local gun shop, and is a Tea Party member who once displayed an American flag and sang the national anthem at a Fourth of July Tea Party terrorist meeting. Ross wasn’t absolutely sure it’s the same guy, but he’s pretty sure.....................

He’d be on the jihadi side, not the Syrian government side, so how could that motivate him? Unless Obama’s crawl down on supporting the Muslims is what annoyed him.

It said he was targeting specific people, but I don’t see how he could have known anybody there. Unless he was simply targeting whites or non-blacks, on the supposition that they wouldn’t be Muslims.

That page has a link to Jack Warner’s (official) FB page. Take a look at who’s going to the meeting at Gasparillo Junction

Something related to a Caribbean political party (ILP?)

“. . . has been identified as Aaron Alexis, 34, from Texas.”

Soon to be followed up with liberal socialist headlines that read: “a conservative Tea Party favorite with ties to the Klu Klux Klan, and the Minutemen in Texas.” The need for gun control is obvious but the conservatives in Congress continue to block reasonable legislation to keep our children safe.

Wait for it . . . . . . .

Not sure if he’s the same one. There is a close up of his face from nose down which matches the lips and nose of the mugshot guy. Also a photo of a weapon-like axe
