WASHINGTON -

Law enforcement officials say the defense contractor who fatally shot 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard was carrying three weapons during the rampage.

Two federal officials say Aaron Alexis had an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and a handgun that he took from a police officer at the scene. The two officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss a pending investigation.

The 34-year-old man died after a running gunbattle inside the building with police.

The FBI says Alexis used a valid pass to get on the Washington base.
