Default Breaking News: Shooter on Navy Yard in DC

http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Confirmed-Shooter-at-Navy-Yard-One-Person-Shot-223897891.html

Active shooter on The Navy Yard in DC. I am not there today, normally I work in the building across from this one.

1 confirmed shot, more believed to be.

Police from a crap load of agencies are responding.

At least 2 police/security and 4-5 civilians have been shot/injured.

News just said "AR-15 military type assault rifle is believed to have been used".

Just called my Dulles and Jessup MD offices, told them to keep their crews away- they have closed 11th St Bridge, so traffic is going to be hell.

Default Notice YET again....

But..but... Washington DC has VERY strict "gun control" regulations??? ...and isn't this a gun free zone for regular civilians ????... Doesn't he know that he's breaking the law ??? .... and the guy is still loose as of 10:00 am Eastern time....
...and I LOVE that the media is (yet again) stating "The military officials said that the gunman may have been armed with an AR15 military style assault rifle" .... Let the public panic begin!!!

The only good thing about this whole thing is that no one has died... so far that is. I pray they will be okay and that they catch the shooter VERY SOON!!

They just reported that the gun is a (3 shot burst) military rifle.
I foresee the term 'workplace violence' being used.

Just stated on Fox, "shooter has a AR-15 civilian model, this type shoots in 3 round bursts, that's why there was reports of three shots fired".
