Default OT: Shooting at DC Naval Sea Command 12 dead

http://news.yahoo.com/shots-fired-at...130407614.html

Quote:
At least 12 people died Monday during a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, officials said. One gunman died in the shooting, and police are seeking two other possible shooters.

The Navy Yard was placed on lockdown after shots were fired inside a building on the base, the U.S. Navy said. At least 10 other people were injured in the shooting, including eight civilians, one Washington Metro police officer and one base officer, D.C. Metro Police said.

Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said the gunman, whose name has yet to be released, was shot during an exchange with the Metro Police officer.

"As far as we know, it's an isolated incident," Gray said.

"We have no known motive at this stage," the mayor added. "We also don't know for certain if there were other shooters."

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said authorities are seeking two possible suspects who may still be at large: a white male, 40 to 50 years old, wearing a khaki military-style uniform and a beret, carrying a handgun or pistol; and a black male, also 40 to 50 years old, 5'10", 180 pounds, medium complexion with gray sideburns and wearing an olive military-style uniform, carrying "a long gun."

"We have reason to believe these people were involved and we need to talk to them," Lanier said.

The FBI, she said, is now taking the lead in the investigation.

Before a scheduled economic speech at the White House, President Barack Obama deplored "yet another mass shooting" — this one targeting military and civilian personnel.

“These are men and women who were going to work, doing their job, protecting all of us," Obama said. "They’re patriots, and they know the dangers of serving abroad. But today they faced the unimaginable: violence that they wouldn’t have expected here at home."

"We will do everything in our power to make sure that whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible," the president added. "I want the investigation to be seamless."

Janis Orlowski, chief medical officer at Washington Hospital Center, said one Metropolitan Police officer and two civilians are being treated there. All three are in critical condition, Orlowski said, but are alert, speaking and have a good chance of survival.

One was shot in the legs, another in the shoulder and another in the head and hand.

Orlowski said Washington Hospital Center is prepared to handle eight to 10 more victims, but did not know how many victims would be transported to the hospital. She said she had been told to expect more.

The Navy said shots were fired at the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters building on the base at 8:20 a.m., and a "shelter in place" order was issued for Navy Yard personnel.

Rick Mason, a program management specialist, told Yahoo News he was on the fourth floor when he saw someone with a shotgun aiming down into the atrium. The gunman, Mason said, was targeting people who walked into the cafeteria.

Other employees described a chaotic scene.

"We heard two shots and started wondering if that was the sound of someone dropping something or if they were really shots," Omar Grant, a civilian employee at the Navy Yard who was on the first floor of the atrium, said. "We heard three more shots, and that's when people started running out of the building and getting the hell out of there."

Approximately 3,000 people work in the building, the Navy said, though it's unclear how many people were inside at the time of the shooting.

A White House official said the president had been briefed several times throughout the morning about the unfolding situation at the Navy Yard by assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism Lisa Monaco and deputy chief of staff Alyssa Mastromanaco.

A heavy SWAT and police presence could be seen around the Navy Yard. Outside the base, employees sat huddled, crying and holding each other. At least one of the victims was airlifted from the scene, as helicopters circled overhead.
A ground stop was ordered at Reagan National Airport, and schools in the area were placed on temporary lockdown.

The 41-acre Navy Yard, located five blocks from Nationals Stadium and a mile and a half from the U.S. Capitol, is home to the Chief of Naval Operations and headquarters for the Naval Historical Center and numerous naval commands.

According to the Navy's website, Naval Sea Systems "engineers, builds, buys and maintains the Navy's ships and submarines and their combat systems." Approximately 60,000 people work there.

— With Olivier Knox reporting from the White House.

I live in the DC Metro area - and its a sad day for everyone. Scary that the possible suspect(s) are still at large.

Security around most government buildings downtown is no joke - in the building I'm at there are no less than 5 armed guards at the entrance with consistent armed bicycle patrols. All bags must be X-rayed, and everyone goes through a metal detector/wanding.

I'm curious why in photo of SWAT team leaving vehicle they seem to have a sense of urgency but nobody else in photo does...looks like they're just calmly walking and/ or standing around

So you didn't see anything? Did you hear gunshots? What about once you got outside what did you see?

I hate when the gunmen are killed in these. I wish them to stay alive and carry out a full life of getting ass raped in a prison.

I heard the gun shots, I am not going to post anything else in public. I need to get clearance from my command. It is not a good day for me.

Douche bag of the day.

It's a sad celebrity ritual. Tragedy strikes somewhere in the U.S., and a star uses Twitter to politicize it for their pet cause.
Henry Winkler of Happy Days fame joined the club earlier today.
The actor rushed to Twitter today after news broke that a shooting at the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. left several people dead. Many details are still unknown, but that didn't prevent Winkler from assuming gun control would have prevented the shooting.
ANOTHER shooting in WASH D.C. PLEASE America do nothing to promote gun control .because thats how we roll until we have all shot each other

Elsid, I am glad you are okay. I hope everyone else will be okay too. We got notices about it at work today and I was in DC yesterday so itwas even more surreal and horrifying to see this today. All my prayers to everyone impacted and certainly to the family of those injured and killed. It's just awful. And Elsid you don't have to share what you don't want. Nobody here needs to know the gory details of this. We all know it's a terrible tragedy and that is enough. Take care Elsid.
