4. The dead suspect was a convicted felon...

A civilian gunman accused of killing a sailor aboard a destroyer at Naval Station Norfolk had at least two felony convictions, including one for voluntary manslaughter, the Navy said Thursday.

Jeffrey Tyrone Savage, 35, of Portsmouth, Va., had not served in the Navy, and his motivation for storming the USS Mahan's quarterdeck late Monday remains unclear, according to the Navy Criminal Investigation Service.

"The NCIS investigation has confirmed that Savage had no reason or authorization to be on Naval Station Norfolk," an NCIS press release said. "The chain of events that allowed Savage entry to the installation and the ship are under investigation."

Savage, who worked for Majette Trucking of Rich Square, N.C., used his valid Transportation Worker Identification Credential to drive a 2002 Freightliner cab onto the world's largest Navy base at a little after 11 p.m. ET Monday. He parked the truck, walked onto Pier 1 and boarded the USS Mahan.
