Navy Yard shooting could have been prevented: US officials

A US Navy sailor arrives at the front gate of the Washington Naval Yard on September 17, 2013 in Washington, DCSupervisors of the gunman who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard last year were worried about his mental state before the shooting but never reported their fears to the government, officials said Tuesday. If the IT contracting company that employed Aaron Alexis had told the government about his erratic behavior, he would have lost his security clearance and his murderous rampage might have been prevented, according to a Navy investigation. Co-workers and managers at the firm, The Experts, a subcontractor for Hewlett-Packard, noticed Alexis, 34, behaved in a way that “raised concerns about his mental stability and presented indicators that he may cause harm to others,” said the report. “Had this information been reported, properly adjudicated, and acted upon, Alexis’ authorization to access secure facilities and information would have been revoked.”
