  • Washington DC Navy Yard shooting Sept 16 2013

    A D.C. police officer is among the people shot at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday morning.

    A police spokesman confirmed at 9:20 a.m. that the officer was shot near the room where a lone gunman has barricaded himself after allegedly shooting at least three people on the Navy Yard grounds in Southeast Washington.

    The U.S. Navy said that three shots were fired around 8:20 a.m. at the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters building, where about 3,000 people work.

    Police said that at least three, possibly four, people were shot. All are in critical condition, authorities said.

    A “shelter in place” order has been issued for Navy Yard personnel, authorities said.

    Police closed the 11th St Bridge as well as M St SE between 2nd and 4th streets SE due to the shooting. Entrances to the Navy Yard Metro station remain open.

    U.S. Capitol Police confirmed enhanced security at the Capitol, but no immediate threat.

    Tyler Elementary School at 10th and G streets in Southeast is on lockdown.

    As helicopters circled overhead and emergency vehicles continued to rush to the scene, crowds of onlookers gathered on sidewalks and at a construction site near the Navy Yard, but police pushed them back, yelling at them to keep a distance from the grounds.

    One employee who declined to give his name said he heard “blam, blam” inside one of the buildings, then someone pulled the fire alarm.

    “We aren’t going back on base today,” he said. “[But] there are still people inside.”

    Reports began circulating around 9:30 a.m. that the suspect was “down,” but D.C. police said the suspect is still on the loose and “hiding between floors.”

            If it's 3 shooters that sounds like a terrorist attack.

                Breaking news:

                At least 12 dead in Navy Yard shooting. Two possible suspects at large - The Washington Post

                At least nine people are dead after as many as three shooters dressed in military style uniforms opened fire in a rampage at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, police said, spreading fear and chaos across the region as authorities tried to contain the incident.

                D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said in a mid-day news conference that one of the suspected shooters is dead, while authorities are looking for two other suspects wearing green and tan military style clothing.

                    12 killed in Navy Yard shooting rampage; suspects may be on loose -

                      So far it sounds like 12 dead, 3 shooters, 1 dead 2 unaccounted for. If the number of shooters is accurate, that would seem to rule out disgruntled employee, jilted lover or run of the mill nut case. Still, hard to say what is accurate at this point. We'll have to wait and see what comes out.

                          “He was the most prodigious personification of all human inferiorities. He was an utterly incapable, unadapted, irresponsible, psychopathic personality, full of empty, infantile fantasies, but cursed with the keen intuition of a rat or a guttersnipe. He represented the shadow, the inferior part of everybody’s personality, in an overwhelming degree, and this was another reason why they fell for him.”

                              i wonder if the other 2 suspects were just leo's that the witnesses saw but maybe were unfamiliar with the uniforms? Seems like there is an alphabet soup of law enforcement agencies there.
