Original article (8:47 a.m. Tuesday): A man who worked for District Furniture Repair in Arlington was one of the victims Monday in the Navy Yard shootings, according to an account in the Washington Post.
Arthur Daniels, 51, relocated and installed furniture in federal buildings. The grandfather of nine was shot in the back after he and a colleague were running away from the gunman and trying to escape on an elevator, according to the Post.
“I don’t know why they shot him,” his wife Priscilla told the newspaper. “He was a good father and hard worker.” She last saw her husband at about 6:30 a.m., about two hours before the reported gunman, Aaron Alexis, opened fire killing 12 people.
Arthur Daniels was the father of five children.
Daniels reportedly worked at the Navy Yard for the past 19 years.
