WASHINGTON (AP) - Aaron Alexis, a 34-year-old former Navy reservist, was identified by the FBI on Monday as the gunman responsible for a mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard in which 13 people died, including Alexis. Here are some biographical details on Alexis:

NAME: Aaron Alexis.

AGE: 34 (born May 9, 1979).

HOMETOWN: New York City.

LAST RESIDENCE: Fort Worth, Texas.

OCCUPATION: Navy reservist from 2007-2011; left as a petty officer 3rd class, stationed in Fort Worth. After discharge, worked as a waiter and delivery driver at the Happy Bowl Thai restaurant in White Settlement, a suburb of Fort Worth, until May 2013.
