On Sept. 25, nine days after shooter Aaron Alexis killed 12 people and wounded four more inside the Washington Navy Yard, the FBI released unbelievable video surveillance footage of Alexis inside the Navy Yard stalking his victims.
According to the FBI, “Alexis had legitimate access to the Navy Yard as a result of his work as a contractor and he utilized a valid pass to gain entry to Building #197.”
Shortly after his arrival in the building and over the course of approximately one hour, Alexis used the Remington 870 shotgun and a Beretta handgun he obtained during the course of his shooting to kill 12 victims and wound four surviving victims before he was shot and killed by law enforcement officers. Investigation to date has determined that Alexis acted alone.
Images released by the FBI show the shooter’s car, and the backpack used to transport his weapons, hanging in a Navy Yard restroom.
The FBI also shared images of Alexis’ sawed-off shotgun, showing the phrases he etched into the stock: “better off this way”, “Not What Yall Say!” and “my ELF weapon.”
ELF refers to the extremely low frequency (ELF) electro magnetic waves that Alexis felt were controlling him.
