Michael Arnold, 59, Sylvia Frasier, 53, Kathy Gaarde, 62, John Roger Johnson, 73, Frank Kohler, 50, Kenneth Bernard Proctor, 46 and Vishnu Pandit, 61, had all been killed, the Metropolitan Police Department said. Mary DeLorenzo Knight, 51, was also among the victims, according to a family spokesperson.
