Update from another site, has this information:

RT @MatthewKeysLive: WTTG: Eyewitness says active shooter at U.S. Naval yard armed with AR-15 assault rifle, double barrel shotgun and a handgun.

Listening to D.C.

Update:

RT @MatthewKeysLive: WTTG: Police describe suspect as an adult black male, medium complexion, bald, 6 ft tall, black shirt & pants

Washington Post, 3 shooters (1 is barricaded)

Shooter "contained but not in custody";
http://news.msn.com/crime-justice/several-killed-in-washington-navy-yard-shooting
..and 4 dead so far... up to 10 wounded... I pray for them and their families.

Agree WHOLEHEARTEDLY that military persons w/ CCW permits should be allowed to carry ON BASE (even more so than civilians... After all, they DID get some training above & beyond...) if for no other reasons 1) Fort Hood ("workplace violence" my @$$... those people were targeted because they were soldiers in a time of war... It's simply the Fed's way of NOT PAYING for what they should) and 2) it's yet another "Gun Free Zone" set up for terrorist, the mentally insane, criminal minded.. Hell.. all the above.. to have a shooting gallery of victims!!

... and WTF "civilian model" that shoots up to 3 round burst ???

I work at the navy yard. I am not at work today. I work at the building next to the one in rhe news.

It is normal for dc police and military and contractor security to all work together. See Marines carrying shotguns on public streets near 8th st is normal as well.

Schools near are not dod. One is charter one is public.

Does anyone else kinda giggle to themselves every time the media repeats how well secured the naval yard is and then proceeds to say they still have no idea how many people are wounded or dead or how many shooters there are?
Isn't that kinda counter intuitive?
Anyone else feel like they are hanging back and waiting for the shooters to bleed out? Makes it hard to ever learn the real story.

Wait till our leader speaks, he has been briefed.

Just remember ,several people have been killed and more shot.

Im sure he will tell us about ,this horrible workplace violence.

Waiting for the president.....he will address this soon.
