Aaron Alexis entered the Navy Yard Monday with a valid pass and a shotgun disassembled into two pieces hidden in a bag, authorities believe.

A senior law enforcement official connected to the investigation into Monday’s shooting spree told The Washington Times on Tuesday that Alexis likely reassembled his Remington 870 in a bathroom after gaining entry to the complex.

He then made his way to the fourth floor of Building 197 and began shooting victims down below in an atrium cafeteria. 

The official said there would have been no reason for Navy Yard security to search the gunman’s bag because he had a credential to access the building as a contractor.
