The Department of Defense was reportedly "furious" about the release of a video showing deranged Washington, D.C., Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis moving through the facility with a gun during a rampage that left 13 people dead.
Jennifer Griffin, national security correspondent for the Fox News Channel, posted the Defense Department reaction from an unnamed senior Pentagon official on her Twitter account.
According to Fox News
, the official said: "People in [the Defense Department] are furious" the FBI had released the video footage ... It was gratuitous."
The video released
by the FBI during a press conference showed Alexis pulling his rental car into a garage, walking into the building with a bag and then pacing deliberately down a corridor with a shotgun, ducking and crouching around a corner, and walking briskly down a flight of stairs.
Twelve workers were slain during the attack; Alexis also died in the rampage. Police believe he was mentally unstable.
