There may be a second suspect, but at this point, only Alexis has been identified. Over the course of the day, a number of points of confusion arose concerning the number and identity of the shooters. At least one other "suspect" was sought and cleared, while NBC and CBS were forced to retract statements that a man named Rollie Chance was the shooter. Layers of fact checkers and all
Alexis is reportedly from Fort Worth, Texas, although I have also heard he was originally from New York. The source of the weapons, obviously illegal in Washington, D.C. with it's strict gun laws, is unknown. People who know Alexis report he recently traveled to Thailand and converted to Buddhism. Did Obama declare war on Buddhism while no one was looking?
If there's a lesson to be learned here, I don't see it yet.
