It gets worse and worse: 12 people are now dead in this morning's mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, including a gunman who has been identified as Ft. Worth, Texas' Aaron Alexis. There's potentially one more killer on the lam—he was described earlier as a middle-aged black man wearing military fatigues. Said President Obama a couple of hours ago, “We’re confronting yet another mass shooting. We will do everything in our power to make sure whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.”
Alexis, who was killed by SWAT forces, was a civilian contractor who used someone else's ID card to gain access to the Navy Yard. He was carrying an AR-15, the same kind of gun used by Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook.
