Killed – Robert Brown (Washington, DC)

male

The D.C. police officer who fatally shot a man Monday was investigating an alleged threat against relatives of a woman who was killed last week, according to three police department officials and a member of the victim’s family.

Monday’s shooting occurred outside the same apartment building — in the 4900 block of G Street SE — in which Rokeida Spriggs, 21, was fatally shot Friday. A relative said occupants called police Monday after finding a threat scrawled on Spriggs’s door.

Police officials said that an officer was in the apartment building to prevent further violence when he confronted a man about 4:50 p.m. The man ran, and the officer chased him to the parking lot.

Assistant Police Chief Alfred Durham said Monday night that the man drew a gun from his waistband, turned and pointed it at the officer, who fired. The police report made public Tuesday says that the man “produced a handgun” and that the officer ordered him to “drop the weapon, but [the man] did not comply.”

The report says the officer fired several rounds at the man, who was pronounced dead at 5:30 p.m. at Prince George’s Hospital Center. Police identified the man as Robert Brown, 26, of Southeast Washington.

On Thursday, November 28, 2013, members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 22-year-old Charles Wennen Young of Forestville, Maryland, pursuant to a DC Superior Court arrest warrant charging him with Second Degree Murder while Armed in connection to the shooting death of Rokeida Spriggs.

A man sought in the killing of a woman in her Southeast Washington apartment last week has been arrested, according to D.C. police, who said the shooting came during a year-long feud among neighbors.

Charles W. Young Jr., 22, of Forestville, Md., was charged with second-degree murder while armed in the death of Rokeida Spriggs. Officer Araz Alali, a D.C. police spokesman, said that Young was arrested Thursday.

Young, known as “Chili,” was one of three men who on Monday returned to the victim’s apartment building in the 4900 block of G Street, police said. An officer was at the building protecting Spriggs’s relatives after they found a threatening note scrawled on their front door. Authorities said the officer confronted a man in a hallway and chased him to a parking lot, where they said he pulled a gun. Police said the officer fired, killing Robert Brown, 26, of Southeast Washington. A second man was taken into custody but not charged; a third man drove away from the scene.

Three police officials and a member of Spriggs’s family said the shooting came during a long dispute with others in the apartment complex. They said that the victim and a man argued in the hall Nov. 22 and that she sprayed him with Mace. The man then fired a gun as Spriggs tried to hide behind her apartment door, the officials said.

Killed – James Edward Booker (Washington, DC)

James Edward Booker

(Washington, DC)-Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting which occurred in the 3200 block of 6th Street, Southeast.

On Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at approximately 9:56 pm, police officers from the Seventh District responded to the 500 block of Alabama Avenue, Southeast for the report of a shooting. Upon their arrival, they located an unconscious adult male suffering from multiple gunshot wound. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded and transported the victim to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The victim was later transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the District of Columbia, pending an autopsy.

A homicide investigation has revealed that the decedent was initially shot in the 3200 block of 6th Street, Southeast, where he consequently ran to the 500 block of Alabama Avenue, Southeast, and eventually collapsed.

The decedent is identified as 24 year-old James Edward Booker of Southeast, Washington, DC.

Anthony Williams was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday for second-degree murder while armed in connection with the shooting death of 24-year-old James Edward Booker.

Williams, who pleaded guilty to the charge in October, turned 18 last week.

“He’s an adult now,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kendra Briggs told the court. “He’ll have to face his decision to take Mr. Booker’s life on November 5, 2013 … as an adult.”

Video footage of the murder showed Booker walking alone on 6th Street Southeast, according to the proffer of facts. Holding a gun in his right hand, Williams got in front of Booker and blocked his path. Williams shot Booker multiple times while he tried to run away.

Killed – Miriam Carey (Washington, DC)

Miriam Carey

On October 3, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Miriam Carey, 34, a dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut, attempted to drive through a White House security checkpoint in her black Infiniti G37 coupe, struck a U.S. Secret Service officer, and was chased by the Secret Service to the United States Capitol where she was fatally shot by law enforcement officers. A young child, Carey’s daughter, was found unharmed in the car after it was ultimately stopped.[2]

White House incident and police response[edit]
At about 2:12 PM, a vehicle driven by Miriam Carey allegedly struck one of the White House barriers at the intersection of 15th St. NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW.[3] At 2:13 p.m. she drove into a well-marked, restricted White House checkpoint at 15th and E Streets NW, without authorization and without stopping, refused to stop when two uniformed Secret Service officers told her to. When an off-duty U.S. Secret Service officer placed a metal bike rack in her path to block her exit, struck the bike rack and the off-duty Secret Service officer who was standing behind it with her car, knocking both the bike rack and the officer onto the ground.[4] Secret Service attempted to arrest the suspect but she continued to drive the car evasively, colliding with one officer who fell on the hood of the car and rolled off.[5][6] Carey then drove 40–80 mph down Pennsylvania Avenue, weaving through traffic and ignoring red lights. Police gave chase east on Pennsylvania Avenue for a dozen blocks. The chase then proceeded south on 1st St. NW/SW between Peace Circle and Garfield traffic circle.

At Garfield Circle, uniformed and plain clothes Secret Service officers attempted to box the car in with at least five marked vehicles and one unmarked cruiser, on United States Capitol grounds, on the sidewalk on the east side of the circle. Four uniformed and two plainclothes officers proceeded to surround the car on foot with guns drawn, shouting orders. Carey eluded the box-in by backing into the Secret Service cruiser behind her and driving away striking a Secret Service officer in the process. The suspect proceeded at high speed north, circling Peace Circle twice and then proceeding east on Constitution Avenue. She got as far as the northeast corner of the Capitol grounds, in the vicinity of the Hart Senate Office Building, where she was forced off the road and stopped near a USCP security hut by the Sewall-Belmont House. During the chase, multiple shots were fired at the car of which five shots hit her from behind including one to the head.[7]

A shelter in place order was issued for the Capitol building during the incident.[8]

Subsequent events[edit]
Carey was brought to MedStar Washington Hospital Center and pronounced dead. There was an 18-month-old child, believed to be the suspect’s daughter, in the back seat of the car. The child was unharmed and taken to Children’s Hospital.[9] The FBI obtained a search warrant and conducted a search of the woman’s home in Stamford, Connecticut to try to determine the possible motivation of her actions. As a precaution, a bomb squad robot was used to enter inside Carey’s house at 114 Woodside Green.[10][11][12][13]

Aftermath[edit]
Both U.S. Capitol Police and Washington DC Metropolitan Police revealed that they believed that the incident was isolated and not part of a terrorist plot.[14] Miriam Carey’s sisters have questioned police actions in this chase.[15] In February 2014, Carey’s family officially filed a wrongful death claim against the US Capitol Police and the Secret Service.[16] Secret Service has been criticized for its handling of the incident, questioning the use of lethal force for a traffic mixup, citing at least 22 instances in which intruders have successfully breached the White House itself without resulting in a fatality. As of one year after the incident, the official investigative report has not been released, nor has video footage.[17]

On July 10, 2014, Federal authorities announced that no charges would be filed against the federal officers and agents, stating, “After a thorough review of all the evidence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office concluded that the evidence was insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the officers who were involved in the shooting used excessive force or possessed the requisite criminal intent at the time of the events.” [18]

Miriam Carey[edit]
Miriam Carey of Stamford, Connecticut was a 34-year-old dental hygienist licensed to practice in New York and Connecticut.[19][12][20] She was born and raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York. She obtained an associate degree in dental hygiene from Hostos Community College and graduated from Brooklyn College in 2007 with a degree in health nutrition science.[21][22][23][24][10] According to a family spokesman, Carey had previously been hospitalized for postpartum depression.[25][26] Carey’s mother told ABC News that Carey had been depressed since giving birth. Dr. Steven Oken, her boss for eight years, described Carey as a “non-political person” who was “always happy.”[25] On the day of the incident, Carey was supposed to be taking her daughter to a doctor’s appointment in Connecticut.[27] The FBI found two medications in her apartment, as well as a laptop, a flash drive and three nonfunctional cell phones. Federal officials said she may have suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and believed President Barack Obama was communicating with her.[28][29] Federal officials said no weapons were found in the car.[30]

Killed – DeVar Battle (Washington, DC)

DeVar Battle1

A father of four who wanted to devote his life to helping others was shot and killed over the weekend in southeast D.C.

DeVar Battle, 34, completed his emergency medical training course in August and registered to become an EMT last week. He was gunned down in the 3000 block of 30th Street SE early Saturday morning.

A judge ordered Christopher Fields held Friday for an unlawful possession of a firearm, but not the second-degree murder charge MPD arrested him for Wednesday.

Devar Battle was found with gunshot wounds on Sept. 28, 2013, in the 3000 block of 30th Street Southeast at around 12:40 a.m. He later died at a local hospital.

According to court documents, MPD suspects Fields in Battle’s death. In a police interview, Fields denied both his involvement in the shooting and having a gun that night.

During Fields’ presentment, Judge Karen Howze made it clear that Fields has not been charged with murder and told both defense and the government to exclude the events of the murder and focus on a witness’ recounting of Fields’ possession of a gun, which ultimately led to her decision.

Documents say, a witness told police Fields was “flashing a handgun” in front of people and that Battle had an altercation with Fields before his death.

Referring to charging documents, Judge Howze said, “There are some problems here,” before ruling. She added: “This is extremely confusing.”

Mass Shooting – Killed – Michael Arnold (Washington, DC)

Mom: Patricia Arnold

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Kenneth Bernard Proctor, age 46

Victims[edit]
There were 13 fatalities, including the perpetrator. Alexis and 11 of the victims were killed at the scene,[22] while a twelfth victim, 61-year-old Vishnu Pandit, died at George Washington University Hospital.[4][23] All the victims killed were civilian employees or contractors.[4] Eight others were injured, three of them from gunfire. The survivors wounded by gunshots (police officer Scott Williams and two female civilians) were in critical condition at Washington Hospital Center.[20][24][25]

Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Mass Shooting – Killed – Sylvia Frasier (Washington, DC)

Sylvia Frasier

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Kenneth Bernard Proctor, age 46

Mass Shooting – Killed – Kathy Gaarde (Washington, DC)

Kathy Gaarde

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Fatalities[18][19]
Michael Arnold, age 59
Martin Bodrog, age 53
Arthur Daniels, age 51
Sylvia Frasier, age 53
Kathy Gaarde, age 62
John Roger Johnson, age 73
Mary Francis Knight, age 51
Frank Kohler, age 50
Vishnu Pandit, age 61
Kenneth Bernard Proctor, age 46
Gerald Read, age 58
Richard Michael Ridgell, age 52

Victims[edit]
There were 13 fatalities, including the perpetrator. Alexis and 11 of the victims were killed at the scene,[22] while a twelfth victim, 61-year-old Vishnu Pandit, died at George Washington University Hospital.[4][23] All the victims killed were civilian employees or contractors.[4] Eight others were injured, three of them from gunfire. The survivors wounded by gunshots (police officer Scott Williams and two female civilians) were in critical condition at Washington Hospital Center.[20][24][25]

He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Woman (Washington, DC)

female

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Man (Washington, DC)

male

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Fatalities[18][19]
Michael Arnold, age 59
Martin Bodrog, age 53
Arthur Daniels, age 51
Sylvia Frasier, age 53
Kathy Gaarde, age 62
John Roger Johnson, age 73
Mary Francis Knight, age 51
Frank Kohler, age 50
Vishnu Pandit, age 61
Kenneth Bernard Proctor, age 46
Gerald Read, age 58
Richard Michael Ridgell, age 52

Victims[edit]
There were 13 fatalities, including the perpetrator. Alexis and 11 of the victims were killed at the scene,[22] while a twelfth victim, 61-year-old Vishnu Pandit, died at George Washington University Hospital.[4][23] All the victims killed were civilian employees or contractors.[4] Eight others were injured, three of them from gunfire. The survivors wounded by gunshots (police officer Scott Williams and two female civilians) were in critical condition at Washington Hospital Center.[20][24][25]

At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Mass Shooting – Killed – Mary Francis Knight (Washington, DC)

Mary Francis Knight

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Mass Shooting – Killed – Richard Michael Ridgell (Washington, DC)

Richard Michael Ridgell

The Washington Navy Yard shooting occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.[6][7][8] The attack, which took place in the Navy Yard’s Building 197, began around 8:20 a.m. EDT and ended when Alexis was killed by police around 9:20 a.m. EDT.

It was the second-deadliest mass murder on a U.S. military base, behind only the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009.

Shooting begins[edit]
On Monday, September 16, Alexis left his hotel and arrived at the Navy Yard in a rented Toyota Prius at around 7:53 a.m., using a valid pass to enter the Yard.[4][9][10][11] He entered Building 197 at 8:08 a.m. through the main entrance, carrying the disassembled shotgun (the barrel and stock of which had been sawed off) in a bag on his shoulder, and went to the fourth floor, where he conducted work during the prior week. He assembled the shotgun inside a bathroom, then emerged with the gun, crossed a hallway into the building’s 4 West area, which is a cubicle area near the atrium, and began shooting at 8:16 a.m. Four people were hit; three of them died, while the fourth, a young woman, survived wounds to the head and hand.[2][10][11][12] At 8:17 a.m., approximately one minute and 30 seconds after the first shots were fired,[11] the first calls to 9-1-1 were made.[2][10][13]

By 8:20 a.m., Alexis had shot and killed eight people on the fourth floor, and he made his way to the third floor, where he fatally shot two more people within the next two minutes. He also fired at several people on at least five separate occasions, wounding one woman in the shoulder as she ran up a stairwell. A NAVSEA employee described encountering a gunman wearing all-blue clothing in a third-floor hallway, saying, “He just turned and started firing.”[10][11][14] After firing several shots on the third floor, Alexis went to the first floor.[11]

Police response[edit]
At 8:23 a.m., officers from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies began arriving at Building 197. However, because there were many buildings on the base, officers were unable to discern Building 197’s location and asked bystanders for its location. They eventually found Building 197 after moving towards the direction people were fleeing from. There was also confusion regarding the shooting also taking place in a nearby building; in reality, a wounded victim evacuated from Building 197 had been moved to an area located near the second building for medical attention.[2][11][13]

While on the first floor, Alexis moved around randomly before turning around and heading towards the front entrance. There, he fired at Richard Ridgell, the security officer stationed there, through a set of windows, killing him and taking his Beretta 92FS 9mm semiautomatic pistol afterwards. Ridgell, a former Maryland state trooper, had earlier been informed by two police officers to remain at his post and try to stop the gunman if he attempted to leave the building.[2][5][4][11][15][16][17] He then fired his shotgun at a second security guard and a Navy military police officer at the first-floor atrium, missing both; the security guard fired back and Alexis fled down a hallway. Shortly afterwards, Alexis fired at two police officers and a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent in another hallway before fleeing again.[11]

At 8:34 a.m., Alexis went towards the west side of the building, where he encountered two men standing at a corner of the building in an alleyway. He tried to fire at them with his shotgun, but realized he was out of ammunition and switched to the stolen Beretta, shooting and killing one of the men with it; the other man managed to escape without injury.[11] Reports indicated the victim in the alleyway was hit by a “stray bullet”.[2] Alexis’s usage of the pistol during the alleyway shooting led police officials to initially believe the possibility of a second gunman involved.[11]

After killing his final victim, Alexis moved to a cubicle area, where he discarded the shotgun. At the same time, a team of officers entered Building 197, but they became confused after gunshots echoed through the atrium, leading them to believe the gunman was on an upper floor. As a result, the officers headed up to the second floor, while Alexis remained on the first floor. At approximately 8:55 a.m., Alexis went to the third floor via stairwell and concealed himself inside a bank of cubicles. At 9:12 a.m., two officers and two NCIS agents entered the cubicle area,[11] whereupon Alexis opened fire on them, hitting one of the officers, Scott Williams, in both legs.[2][5][13][17] The other officer and the NCIS agents dragged Williams out of the area and alerted other officers to Alexis’ presence. Williams would later be taken down to the first floor and seek medical attention, and ultimately survive.[11]

At 9:15 a.m., soon after Williams’ evacuation, D.C. Police Emergency Response Team officer Dorian DeSantis and U.S. Park Police officers Andrew Wong and Carl Hiott entered the cubicle area and searched the individual banks. Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot.[11] At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m.[2][10][13][17][20][21]

Fatalities[18][19]
Michael Arnold, age 59
Martin Bodrog, age 53
Arthur Daniels, age 51
Sylvia Frasier, age 53
Kathy Gaarde, age 62
John Roger Johnson, age 73
Mary Francis Knight, age 51
Frank Kohler, age 50
Vishnu Pandit, age 61
Kenneth Bernard Proctor, age 46
Gerald Read, age 58
Richard Michael Ridgell, age 52

Victims[edit]
There were 13 fatalities, including the perpetrator. Alexis and 11 of the victims were killed at the scene,[22] while a twelfth victim, 61-year-old Vishnu Pandit, died at George Washington University Hospital.[4][23] All the victims killed were civilian employees or contractors.[4] Eight others were injured, three of them from gunfire. The survivors wounded by gunshots (police officer Scott Williams and two female civilians) were in critical condition at Washington Hospital Center.[20][24][25]
