Police say a lone gunmen, in fatigues, opened fire in a building where approximately 3,000 people work. We would learn by Monday afternoon that Aaron Alexis, 34, who was an ex-naval reservist most recently working as a contractor.

The names of seven of the victims were released late Monday: Michael Arnold, 59; Sylvia Frasier, 53; Kathy Gaarde, 62; John Roger Johnson, 73; Frank Kohler, 50; Kenneth Bernard Proctor, 46; and Vishnu Pandit, 61.
