Navy Yard shooting: Details of some of the victims start to surface
WASHINGTON (AP) - A dozen people were killed by a lone gunman in a shooting rampage Monday at the Washington Navy Yard. It was the deadliest attack at a domestic military installation since November 2009, when an Army psychiatrist killed 13 people and wounded 30 others at Fort Hood, Texas. Early Tuesday, the stories of some of those who died started to surface.
MICHAEL ARNOLD, 59.
Michael Arnold of Lorton, Virginia, was a Navy veteran and avid pilot who was building a light airplane at his home, said his unc
le, Steve Hunter. "It would have been the first plane he ever owned," Hunter said in a telephone interview from Rochester, Michigan, Arnold's hometown. "It's partially assembled in his basement." Arnold graduated from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and served in the Navy for 29 years, before retiring as a captain last October, according to an article in the Navy Supply Corps Newsletter.
