    WASHINGTON, October 22, 2013 — Before his murderous rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, Aaron Alexis sent a series of emails to an anti-surveillance group headquartered in California claiming he feared he was being monitored by the government and being attacked by extremely low frequency (ELF) weapons. “I don’t want to call you from my phone, they record everything I’ve been saying,” Mr. Alexis wrote in one such email obtained by The Washington Times Communities that was sent just days before his mass shooting last month. The FBI has obtained the emails and recently visited the group, Freedom From Covert...

    Aaron Alexis, the gunman who killed twelve people in Washington, D.C., last week, can be seen stalking the halls of the Navy Yard with a shotgun in gut-sinking security footage released today by the FBI. At a press conference, the agency shared the results of its investigation so far: The attack lasted from Alexis’s arrival at the building at 7:53 a.m. until he was shot and killed by law enforcement at 9:25 a.m. His weapons included a Beretta handgun and a Remington 870 shotgun, “altered with a sawed-off barrel and stock” and etched with the previously reported phrases “Better off...

    The FBI released surveillance video and chilling images today showing Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis entering the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters last week and moving through Building 197 with a shotgun. Valerie Parlave, assistant director of the FBI's Washington field officer, said they now have a "greater understanding of recent movements and activities" by Alexis, who they say acted alone. Parlave said Alexis used a shotgun, which had been altered with a sawed off barrel and stock, and a pistol he obtained during the shooting to kill 12 people last Monday. Etched on the shotgun were the phrases "End...

    WASHINGTON, September 18, 2013 – There was a Newport, Rhode Island police report summarizing an early morning complaint in August by Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis. Alexis complained that an individual he had an altercation with in an airport had “sent 3 people to follow him and keep him awake by talking to him…using ‘some sort of microwave device.’” Was this a first red flag leading to an alarming portrait of a defense contractor suffering from mental illness? Or fact? What caused Alexis to voice this complaint on August 7, 2013, 42 days prior to embarking on a shooting...

Early reports suggest that Alexis was a heavy drinker with anger issues and a history of run-ins with both the military and the law, including eight instances where Navy superiors cited him for misconduct and three occasions when he was arrested on a variety of charges, including possible gun crimes....

Instead, the gunman, Aaron Alexis of Texas, bought a law-enforcement-style shotgun — an 870 Remington pump — and used it on Monday as he rampaged through the navy yard, said the officials, who requested anonymity b
