Aaron Alexis Facts

The dead gunman, 34, allegedly responsible for killing 12 people at the DC Navy Yard on Sept. 16, has had previous run-ins with the law before, leading to a minor criminal record — up until now.

Aaron Alexis died on Sept. 16, alongside 12 Navy Yard victims he is suspected of opening fire on and killing. HollywoodLife.com has rounded up five things to know about Aaron, indicating a very troubled and spotty past.

Aaron Alexis: Alleged Navy Yard Shooting Gunman

After being identified as a suspect at the Washington, D.C. Navy Yard shooting, everyone is curious to know just what Aaron’s background was. Who is he?

1. He enrolled in the U.S. Navy Reserves in 2007 as a mate to a navy electrician, and was discharged in 2011.

2. The reason for his discharge was because of an arrest for firing a gun inside his apartment in 2010, when he was based in Fort Worth, Texas.

3. He also has another arrest in his past. He was arrested in 2004 in Seattle, Wash. for shooting out the tires of a construction worker’s car who was parking in his neighborhood. He claimed to police that it was a “blackout” and he couldn’t remember shooting at the car until after it happened.

4. He was enrolled at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Fort Worth campus as an online student pursuing a degree in aeronautics, as of July 2012.

5. Aaron worked for a subcontactor for Hewlett-Packard to do an IT project with the navy — and his ID badge tragically got him in to the Navy Yard base for the shooting.

Looks like he definitely knew his way around the Navy Yard. We hope more details come to light soon about his motives and why he did such a horrific thing.
