Latest: One gunman dead, two suspects at large after rampage kills at least 12 at D.C. Navy Yard
As many as three gunmen opened fire Monday inside one of the Navy’s oldest buildings, attacking office workers at a heavily guarded military facility in the heart of the nation’s capital.
At least 12 people were killed, D.C.’s police chief said shortly after 2 p.m. Monday.
One of the gunmen was dead, and police were searching for two other men believed to have joined in the attack at the Washington Navy Yard. The suspects were reportedly dressed in military-style clothing, including one who had on a beret.
“The big concern for us right now is that we potentially have two other shooters we have not located,” Lanier said at a midday news conference from the scene.
“In terms of the investigation, it is still very active.”
In all, more than a dozen people were shot. It was not immediately clear whether that number included the dead gunman. (AP Photo/Don Andres)
