Tech firm CEO says no personnel issues with Aaron Alexis

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The CEO of an IT-consulting company where Aaron Alexis once worked says the suspected gunman in the Washington Navy Yard massacre had "no personnel issues" he was aware of.

Thomas Hoshko of The Experts, a Florida-based company that contracts with the U.S. military, also says a background check of Alexis as recently as July revealed no criminal history.

Authorities believe the 34-year-old Alexis, a former Navy reservist and information technology employee with a defense contractor, fatally shot 12 people at the Navy Yard on Monday before being killed by police.

He was arrested in connection with shootings in 2004 and 2010 in Texas and Seattle but wasn't charged.
