The suspected gunman in the Navy Yard shooting that left 12 dead went to the emergency room twice to get treatment for insomnia, according to the Department of Veteran Affairs. During the August ER visits, which came just weeks after he reported “hearing voices,” he assured doctors that he was neither depressed nor suicidal. “Mr. Alexis was alert and oriented, and was asked by VA doctors if he had thoughts about harming himself or others, which he denied,” reads a memo from VA Affairs. Once discharged, Alexis was prescribed Trazodone, an anti-depressant used to treat sleeplessness.
