Washington gunman had shotgun, valid entry pass: FBI

The FBI unloads boxes from a large truck near the front gate of the Washington Naval Yard September 17, 2013 in Washington, DC.The gunman who killed 12 people at a Navy base in Washington entered with a valid pass and a legally purchased shotgun, the FBI said Tuesday. Once inside, Aaron Alexis, 34, may have obtained a handgun after he began shooting, said Valerie Parlave, assistant director of the FBI's Washington field office. He brought the shotgun legally in neighboring Virginia, and there is no evidence he had an assault rifle as some reports have said, Parlave addded.
