FBI Investigating Why Practicing Buddhist Opened Fire at Navy Yard in D.C.

A practicing Buddhist known as a “peaceful soul” by friends was the gunman behind the Washington Navy Yard shooting rampage Monday that claimed a dozen lives, including his own, the Washington Times reports.

Now the FBI is trying to determine why Aaron Alexis would open fire at the historic Washington Navy Yard in Southeast D.C.

“He is a nice person,” said Naree Wilton, an employee at a Thai restaurant where Alexis had worked. “I never see him get mad at anybody.”

According to the Washington Times, Alexis told his coworkers that he was leaving the area about three months ago.

Whether he actually left is another question and part of the FBI investigation.
