Grand_Moff_Joseph: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Mistymtnhop: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: My sister is barricaded on the 5th floor.  My BIL talked to her 20 min ago on the phone and she said "gunshots" and hung up.  He just heard from her now and she said she's still safe.

Tell her to stay safe and everyone on Fark is anxious for this to be over and for her to get out of there. Oh and ask her if she gets to take the rest of the day off when this is all over? I'm just curious.

She was evacuated around 11 and is in a secure auditorium on base waiting to be interviewed to find out what the fark just happened.  The shooter opened fire 10 feet from her cubicle, but she wasn't there because she was walking back from getting coffee w/some coworkers... from the cafeteria that he was shooting in to.  They heard the shots and ducked into an empty office and rode it out safely for the next 3 hours.

Fark Mondays.

Thank heavens she's ok.  Scary how the smallest decisions can make a terrifying difference in our lives.


Whew.  No lie.  Glad she's ok.  And this is just further evidence to support my belief that the best thing one can do at work is anything other than work.  Getting coffee, making out with a coworker in the utility closet--these things can save your life, people...

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: MSNBC reporting that the shooter got an ID badge from someone that was recently demoted and/or discharged in order to get into the building, but that might just be a coincidence.

Shooter is Aaron Alexis, 34, of Fort Worth, TX. Recently started working for a Naval contractor.


Looks like he had a LinkedIn that now conspicuously "no longer exists."

Possible mug shot of the suspect from a prior arrest

"Discharge firearm"? Hmmmm....
 
2013-09-16 02:51:32 PM
If you Google "Aaron Alexis Fort Worth," you get a LinkedIn page link that's probably him, because it mentions the following:

United States Navy at NASFort Worth JRB; Network Tech at SinglePoint. Education. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

But if you click on the link, the page has been scrubbed.

Sounds like he had a somewhat similar job to Edward Snowden's, right? He must have found out something that would motivate him to go all the way to DC and start killing people.

I'm still trying to figure out what in hell is known, google news is giving me nine as the number now.

Hobodeluxe: PainfulItching: Just did a quick scrub of the major news sites. Only the Washington Post has the 3 gunman thing. Everyone else is saying 1 shooter 3 dead. Maybe that's the crossup.

NBC reported they think 3 shooters and 12 people are dead


Way to cherrypick a post from 3 hours ago, an hour before anything was verified by anyone official. I also pointed out that the DC police chief updated the information they were working with an hour later.

bighairyguy: Darn, my money was "wingnut white guy".


I'd have thought that too, not necessarily sure WHICH wing nut.  I'm wondering now if I need to adjust my armchair criminal profiling a bit.  I used to think that this kind of thing was purely a white man's hobby, but maybe it's just that there's a lot more white people in this country, perhaps statistically blacks are just as likely when adjusted to percentage of the population.  I totally blew it with the beltway sniper, had him pegged as a white male, age 20-40.  Never would I have guessed a black Muslim (ostensibly) and his underage homosexual partner.

Hi all.

Just a reminder that day-zero reporting in a crisis event is very low value. Tune back in three or four days for actual news. Continue on with speculative wankery 'til then.

For Farkers in the district, hang in there. This is gonna fark up your commute but it'll be business as usual in a day or so. Weird shiat is a risk of city life. In the nation's capital, that's doubled up. Get ye home, get some Ben & Jerries in ya, maybe pick up an extra Chipotle for the fridge in case the boss says non-critical staff can use a leave day tomorrow.

Do some exercise. Hit the shower. Crash early. Read about it in the Post tomorrow, or just wait; someone at the office will fill ya in.


Brits had to deal with bombs falling on them on the regular for a few years. They managed. You'll manage, too.

Good luck.
