    Default Shooting At U.S. Navy Yard In Washington, D.C.

    Developing: Shooting At U.S. Navy Yard In Washington, D.C.


    The Navy just posted this news release:

    WASHINGTON (NNS) — An active shooter was reported inside the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters building (Bldg. 197) on the Washington Navy Yard at 8:20 a.m. (Eastern Time).

    There is one confirmed injury. Emergency personnel are on scene and a "shelter in place" order has been issued for Navy Yard personnel.

    The Naval Sea Systems Command's headquarters is the work place for about 3,000 people.

    The organization is comprised of command staff, headquarters directorates, affiliated Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and numerous field activities. Together, we engineer, build, buy and maintain ships, submarines and combat systems that meet the Fleet's current and future operational requirements.

    Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) is the largest of the Navy's five system commands. With a fiscal year budget of nearly $30 billion, NAVSEA accounts for one quarter of the Navy's entire budget. With a force of 60,000 civilian, military and contract support personnel, NAVSEA engineers, builds, buys and maintains the Navy's ships and submarines and their combat systems.

    WASHINGTON — The Washington Navy Yard was placed on lockdown after multiple shots were fired inside a building on the base, the U.S. Navy said.

    At least 10 people were injured in the shooting, including eight civilians, one Washington, D.C., Metro police officer and one base officer, D.C. Metro Police said. There were several fatalities, according to the Associated Press.

    The Navy said three shots were fired at the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters building on the base at approximately 8:20 a.m., and police were treating it as an active shooter situation. According to the Washington Post, the officer was shot near the room where a lone gunman had barricaded himself.

    Rick Mason, administrative specialist program management specialist for the U.S. Navy, told Yahoo News he was on the fourth floor when he saw a shooter had a shotgun, aiming down into the atrium. The gunman, Mason said, was targeting people who walked into the cafeteria.

    A "shelter in place" order was issued for Navy Yard personnel, the Navy said in a news release.

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

    A heavy SWAT and police presence could be seen around the Navy Yard, and a helicopter was circling overhead.

    Employees could be seen huddled outside the base crying and holding each other. At least one of the victims was airlifted from the scene.

    According to WJLA-TV, a "ground stop" was ordered at Reagan National Airport, and schools in the area were placed on temporary lockdown, and several roads were closed in the area.

    A White House official said President Barack Obama has been briefed several times 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.

    We are secure and very safe, considering the circumstances. That's all I can say and hope for.

    First time here for a short meeting. I hope those who were killed today got to say goodbye to their loves ones.

    Two Shooters May Still be at Large at D.C. Navy Yard; Multiple Victims Dead

    Police say as many as two gunmen may still be at large near the D.C. Navy Yard Monday after a shooting that began in a heavily secured building and left a number of people dead.

    One other gunman has been killed, Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier said at a midday press conference.

    Initial reports had said that 11 people were shot on base and four had died, but Lanier said that information was preliminary. "There are multiple victims inside deceased," Lanier said.

    They are seeking two other people as "possible" gunmen, Lanier said. One was a white male, wearing a khaki military-type uniform and a beret hat. He was armed with a handgun, and was last seen about 8:30 a.m., Lanier said.

    Lanier also said police were seeking a black man, aged about 50, who was wearing olive drab and was armed with a "long gun," though she did not give any other details about the weapon.

    President Obama mentioned the shooting in remarks from the White House Monday. "We do know that several people have been shot and some have been killed," he said. "We are facing another mass shooting."

    People near the base are being asked to stay in their homes, and eight D.C. public schools and one private school nearby have been locked down.

    A large search, including from helicopters, continues. "It's a large piece of land with many buildings," Assistant D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham told News4. "It's going to take a while to determine that it is safe."

    Tactical teams have entered at least two buildings on the Navy Base to search for the shooter, and News4's Mark Segraves reported that three helicopters were seen tightly circling part of the base earlier.

    Earlier Monday morning, the one known gunman walked into Building #197 at the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters, 1336 Isaac Hull Ave. in the Southeast section of the District. He shot a security guard in the head, killing him, sources confirmed to News4's Jackie Bensen.

    The gunman then walked through the building, and seemed to target victims, Bensen reported. Some reports indicate he was armed with an AR-15, a military-style assault weapon.

    D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies responded, Bensen said. During that response, a MPD officer was shot in the leg.

    That gunman was then shot by a FBI hostage response team, Bensen said.

    Washington Hospital Center said the MPD officer was among three victims that had been transported to that hospital. The officer was shot in the legs; one other victim was shot in the shoulder and one was shot in the head and hand.

    All are alert and speaking at this time, and there is a "very good chance they will survive," said Dr. Janis Orlowski, chief medical officer at the hospital.

    However, the hospital has been prepared to expect more victims.

    One victim was reported to be on the roof of a building, reported News4's Tony Tull. A U.S. Park Police helicopter hovering above the scene around 9:50 a.m. lowered a basket to a building and lifted what appeared to be a shooting victim from the roof. The helicopter came back to the scene just after 10 a.m. to retrieve another victim.

    But other details were sketchy from the scene. The shots continued to ring out through the morning, including a volley that Tull reported at about 9:20 a.m. and another volley that News4's Mark Segraves heard at about 11 a.m.

    Federal and local emergency personnel converged on the scene, "and a shelter in place order has been issued for Navy Yard personnel," the Navy said. Among the responders was a federal SWAT unit.

    President Barack Obama is getting frequent briefings about the deadly shooting from senior aides. The White House says Obama directed his team to stay in touch with the Navy, FBI and local officials as the events unfold.

    D.C. Public Schools put six schools and one administrative building on lockdown, meaning no visitors or staff may enter or leave the building and recess for students is inside. These schools are affected:

    Amidon-Bowen Elementary School
    Brent Elementary School
    Eastern High School
    Eliot-Hine Middle School
    Jefferson Academy
    Tyler Elementary School
    Payne Elementary School
    Watkins Elementary School
    Van Ness Administrative Building

    The following charter schools are also on lockdown:

    Eagle Academy PCS - New Jersey Ave.
    Friendship PCS Chamberlain Elementary and Middle.
    Cesar Chavez PCS for Public Policy - Capitol Hill
    Richard Wright PCS for Journalism and Media Arts
    Somerset Prep DC PCS

    The 11th Street Bridge and roads in the area are closed.

    Metro has also reopened New Jersey Avenue entrance at the Navy Yard station.

    The Navy Yard is located in southeast Washington on the Anacostia River. The Navy says 3,000 people work inside the building, including command staff, headquarters directorates and field activities. They coordinate the Naval Sea Systems Command, or NAVSEA, the largest of the Navy's five system commands.
