According to the latest account put together by investigators, Alexis went into a fourth-floor bathroom carrying a bag, took out his shotgun, then went to a fourth-floor balcony and began firing into an atrium below.
Alexis then went to the first floor, shot a security guard and took his handgun, and went back upstairs to resume the rampage, investigators say. Most of Alexis’ victims were hit with shotgun blasts, but others were hit by bullets from the handgun.
Federal law enforcement officials said that Alexis left a Residence Inn in Washington on Monday morning, drove a rental car to the Navy Yard and used his credentials to enter the base. Military officials said that Alexis had a security card that allowed him access to the Navy Yard but not to the office building where he later opened fire.
Once on the base, the law enforcement officials said, Alexis apparently entered a men’s room and readied a Remington pump-action shotgun. They said he walked out, shot a police officer and a security guard and took at least one of their handguns before continuing his rampage.
Inside the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command, on the fourth floor, Alexis sprayed bullets into a breakfast crowd in an atrium below, at others on a third-floor balcony and at at least one man in a fourth-floor corridor, according to authorities and eyewitness accounts.

When you go into any federal building, courthouse, municipal building or otherwise here in NYC you have to put all bags through a metal detector. No ifs and or buts about it and no matter who you are from I've witnesses, and especially if you're not known by the security personnel. I find it unbelievable you don't have to do that on a military installation where it's a gun free zone, and especially into an office tower.
