Navy Yard shooting: Washington gunman 'hunted' victims, say officials
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The gunman who slaughtered 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard stalked his victims like a "hunter", officials said on Thursday in the chilling first portrait of how the carnage unfolded.
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey told reporters that former Navy sailor Aaron Alexis had roamed the offices and corridors of the Navy Yard's 197 building, blasting victims at random with a sawed-off shotgun before being shot dead.
Alexis, 34, was killed in a gun battle with police after being cornered following Monday's bloody spree.
Mr Comey's account of the rampage came after analysis of security camera footage taken inside the 197 building.
