Twelve people are dead and several others wounded after a gunman opened fire at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters in Washington D.C., according to authorities. D.C. Metro Police Chief Cathy Lanier said one shooter was dead, who has now been identified as Aaron Alexis, 34, of Fort Worth. One policeman was wounded in an "engagement" with at least one gunman.
Lanier indicates that authorities have "multiple" pieces of information suggesting that there may have been additional shooters. Authorities were looking for two men dressed in military style clothing. A federal official, however, says that they have no evidence that anyone other than the dead gunman fired weapons in the attack and said that investigators were analyzing video of the shooting.
At least seven people are dead after as many as three shooters outfitted in military style uniforms opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard this morning. During a mid-day news conference, Washington D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier said that one of the suspected shooters is dead, and authorities are still looking for two other suspects, who are said to be wearing green and tan military style clothing.
One of the men is described as a white male wearing khaki tan military uniform and beret and carrying a handgun. They are also looking for a black male, about 50, wearing an olive military style uniform and in possession of a "long gun."
Police are asking anyone with information on these two people to call 202-727-9099.
Several people were reportedly shot at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters in Washington D.C. on Monday morning, and a "shelter-in-place" order was issued at the Navy Yard.
