Navy Yard Shooter Sought Medical Treatment Before Shooting Rampage

In the days before he opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard this week, Aaron Alexis sought emergency treatment twice, Bloomberg reports.

The 34-year-old Navy contractor, who had a history of mental illness, requested treatment for insomnia twice in the past month, the Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday.

Authorities alerted the local naval station of Alexis’ behavior. A few weeks earlier, Alexis had told police he was hearing voices, Bloomberg reported.

The VA reported that Alexis never threatened to hurt anyone while seeking treatment.
