What police believe to be two shooters, including one in fatigues, killed at least four people and wounded eight others at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, throwing the region into fear and chaos as authorities tried to contain the incident.
At least one of the shooters is “down,” police said mid-morning, but it was unclear whether that means the suspect has been arrested or shot. They said the another suspect may remain at large, and police believe they have pinned him down in a building on the installation in Southeast Washington.
Gunfire was heard shortly before 11 a.m., and police were sweeping the building where the shooter was apparently holed up. Witnesses said the gunman was heavily armed.
At least two police officers were shot, but it was unclear whether either was among the fatalities. Police on the scene said one is a D.C. Metro Police officer who was shot twice in the leg and was evacuated on a helicopter that took off from a rooftop. The other was a base officer.
