Employer says it wasn’t warned about accused D.C. shooter

Authorities did not alert the defense contractor that employed Aaron Alexis about his bizarre behavior at a Newport, R.I., hotel about a month before his rampage in Washington on Monday that killed 12 people, a company spokesman said Wednesday.

The spokesman for The Experts, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based information technology company that does work for the military, said neither Newport police nor naval authorities notified them of Alexis’s odd behavior, which occurred on the morning of Aug. 7 at a Marriott hotel.
