According to Reuters, the police in Newport, Rhode Island, were so concerned by the bizarre behavior of Aaron Alexis that they notified the Navy Police weeks ago.
According to the Los Angeles Times:
Just five weeks before he killed 12 people at the Navy Yard in Washington, Aaron Alexis told police in Newport, R.I., that he was hearing voices in his head, that he feared three people were going to harm him and that the voices sometimes came through “the walls, floor and ceiling” of a Navy base in Rhode Island where he was working as a civilian contractor.Somebody dropped the ball, and now the bodies have piled up.
Alexis, 34, who was killed by police at the end of the rampage Monday, also said the individuals were using “some sort of microwave machine” to send vibrations through “the walls, floor and ceiling” of a Navy base in Rhode Island where he was working as a civilian contractor.
Alexis, 34, who was killed by police at the end of the rampage Monday, also said the individuals were using “some sort of microwave machine” to send vibrations through the ceiling of his hotel room to keep him from falling asleep...

Just a shotgun.
Like Uncle Joe [Biden] advised people should buy for self defense instead of an AR-15 or pistol.
And a handgun stolen from someone he shot....
Charles Whitman, the shooter in the tower at the University of Texas in Austin in 1966, had a brain tumor. Whether or not Whitman's brain tumor caused his violent actions has been a subject of debate for a long time.
