Investigators continue to piece together information about Navy Yard shooting suspect Aaron Alexis, who carried out an attack that left 12 dead and eight injured Monday.

CBS News special correspondent and former FBI assistant director John Miller reports there are no indications that the suspect was self-radicalized. Rather, it is likely he was a disgruntled workerwith anger management issues. Miller also said that he had sought treatment for mental health issues from the Veteran’s Administration.

“The indications are [that] he was a government worker with a secret clearance who was a devout Buddhist,” Miller said on “CBS This Morning.”

“There were mental issues that he sought help for from the VA a number of times. He was … acting normally during work and then having these episodes for which he was trying to get treatment.”
