Navy Yard Video Shows Shooter Wandering Around Looking for Targets

Didn't appear to have any particular people in mind to kill

A review of video evidence that captured Monday's deadly shooting massacre at the Washington Navy Yard showed that the former Navy reservist who investigators say gunned down 12 people didn't appear to target anyone in particular, FBI Director James Comey said Thursday.

At a briefing attended by CBS News correspondent Bob Orr, Comey said the review found that 34-year-old Aaron Alexis didn't appear to be looking for any particular person or group during his rampage.

Instead, the FBI director said that Alexis, who died in a police shootout, didn't appear to say anything and just started shooting in Building 197. He followed no discernible pattern, appearing to simply look for people to shoot as he walked through the hallways with a sawed-off shotgun.
