This latest shooting was caused by Trazadone:

The New York Times has reported that while in Providence Rhode Island on August 23, 2013, and again, five days later, in Washington, D.C., Aaron Alexis had been prescribed Trazodone, an antidepressant that carries an FDA black box warning for suicide, and is documented to cause mania and violent behavior.

Yes, Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, is reported to have been taking the antidepressant Trazodone. Now, twelve innocent people (plus the shooter) are dead at the Washington Navy Yard. These senseless deaths are sad, tragic, and incomprehensible. And it is time to point the finger at those who are responsible.
