NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - The man who gunned down 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard called police in a Rhode Island city last month to complain that voices were harassing him through a wall at his hotel and that he worried they might harm him.

According to a police report, two Newport police officers were called to a Marriott in town around 6 a.m. Aug. 7. Aaron Alexis told them he was in town as a naval contractor. Newport is the site of Naval Station Newport, the Naval War College and several military contractors.
