WASHINGTON -- The FBI released video Wednesday showing the path of the of a man who opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard last week.
Video footage from closed-circuit video cameras shows Aaron Alexis, now deceased, at the Washington Navy Yard on September 16. The video was posted to the FBI's YouTube page.
The footage includes the following:
- Alexis drives his rental car, a blue Toyota Prius, through the Washington Navy Yard main gate.
- Alexis enters Building #197 carrying a backpack. Alexis had legitimate access to the Washington Navy Yard as a result of his work as a contractor and he utilized a valid pass to gain entry to the building, the FBI said.
- Alexis moves through the hallways and a stairwell of Building #197 carrying a Remington 870 shotgun.
Valerie Parlave, head of the FBI's field office in Washington, said Wednesday during a news conference there is no indication that the Alexis targeted any specific individuals when he opened fire inside a building, killing 12 people.
Parlave said investigators are continuing to explore the background and motivations of Alexis. However, she says he had a well-documented history of mental health issues.
Parlave says Alexis held a delusional belief that he was being controlled by extremely low frequency waves, or ELF waves. Alexis had written "my ELF weapon" on a shotgun he used in the rampage.
Alexis, a former Navy reservist and IT contractor, was killed in a shootout with police.
