The CEO of an IT consulting company that employed the gunman in the Washington Navy Yard shootings sent an email to Navy Secretary Ray Mabus offering his services to help the military improve security.

The email from The Experts chief Thomas Hoshko stunned some Navy leaders still reeling from the rampage Monday that left 13 people dead, including the gunman, former Navy reservist Aaron Alexis.

In the email, obtained by The Associated Press, Hoshko offers his condolences. But he also lays out his work experience and offers his services, saying he could help improve security for the military, contractors and civilians.

Navy officials confirmed that email was sent to Mabus, but they declined to characterize its contents. The company declined to comment.
