In their last press conference of the night after Monday morning's fatal shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, officials identified seven of the 12 victims.


They are, according to Washington's Metropolitan Police Department: Michael Arnold, 59; Sylvia Frasier, 53; Kathy Gaarde, 62; John Roger Johnson, 73;Frank Kohler, 50; Kenneth Bernard Proctor, 46; and Vishnu Pandit, 61.

None of the victims have been identified as active-duty military personnel, officials said.

Officials still need to notify the loved ones of the five remaining victims.

An additional victim was identified by the Washington Post as Arthur Daniels, 51.

Online records identified a Vishnu Pandit in his 60s living in North Potomac, Md. A person who answered the telephone at the address said, "Please tell your colleagues not to call."

Neighbor Mike Honig told the Post that Pandit was "a very nice man with an Irish setter."

Michael Arnold's profile on LinkedIn, an online professional network, identified Arnold as a logistician and supply chain executive with LMI, a consulting firm based in McLean, Va., and said he was a graduate of the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.

For 29 years, he was a Navy supply corps officer before working at the Pentagon from 2010 to 2012, according to the profile.

Kathy Gaarde was a Washington Capitals fan, and devoted wife and mother of two, neighbor and friend Patrick Bolton told the news organization.

"The mother was just the kindest lady in the world," Bolton told the Post. "I've never seen her do anything but nice things for people."

A neighbor of Frank Kohler's in St. Mary's County, Md., on the Chesapeake Bay told the Post Kohler was married with two daughters.

The Navy established two telephone numbers for families to call for information about their loved ones: (202) 433-6151 and (202) 433-9713.
