We begin with a haunting new video, a killer roaming the halls of the washington navy yard looking for targets. The fbi released the new surveillance tape showing frame by frame how the gunman moved in secret and around him workers scramble for cover. The video is not easy to watch but abc junior justice correspondent shows us what it reveals behind the mind of a mass shooter. Reporter: This is alexis armed with a sawed off shotgun hunting innocent victims. It started as a routine monday at the navy yard. Alexis shows his pass and is waved in by a security guard, just before 8 am.

Diane, they never had a chance and still no answers to why so many red flags were missed. Thank you, pierre. And also next tonight we have new details about that
