Workplace violence or terror related. In America it means the same thing now but just to clarify. Multiple injuries are reported and the police confirm at least one is shot but condition is not available.



The U.S. Navy has confirmed that there is an active shooter on the grounds of the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast.

D.C. Police say they have received reports that multiple people have been shot.

This story will be updated.


With all of the tensions in the US and abroad this could have broader applications or maybe it is a domestic issue. Lets hope everyone is ok and no deaths .

I just switched on the news and seen this horrific incident unfolding. I would urge everyone to refrain from arguing about conspiracy theories and gun control. As far as we know it is an active shooter who is still on the loose. Emergency services appear to be on scene in large numbers so let's hope these brave men and women can bring a safe conclusion to this incident for all involved. Two victims reported now.

Why should people refrain from sharing views as they happen? We're all adults here. Im sure we'll manage to disregard or consider information as people share it.

I know some of it might not amount to anything. But i have no problem censoring my own impressions of info i recieve without asking others to do it for me.

Just saying.

Now reports of an officer down on the third floor of a building presumably within the yard. I really hope this is the end of the shooting and injuries. Now reports of a gunman on the fourth floor. This is awful to watch and listen to. Best wishes to all emergency services on scene and the victims.

Latest reports is that the shooter has a rifle(possibly a shotgun) and confirmation of an officer shot.

Link

There are also new reports of gunshots since the originals around 8:20. The Navys cafeteria is in the building in question so hopefully it was not in there or it may be worse than originally reported.

Yeah Sky News seem to be showing the coverage from Fox News so i assume its live there too.

Im also recording it all because... well as we already know, sometimes stories and accounts can change.

Has anyone noticed that the news broadcasters on Sky (Fox) have already mentioned Syria a few times, they seemed to be saying that due to the naval presence there and the fact it was the Naval Yard targeted this cant be ruled out.

Cant believe they are speculating about something like that with zero evidence.

I didn't actually hear anything about 'Syria' but TBH, I havn't been listening that closely as I'm on ATS!!


What I do know though is that whoever it is, he/she won't be getting out alive, not with all he Police, Snipers and Swat teams around...

Yes, the media is obviously following a script.

And isn't it odd one of the first posters here sternly warned us not to jump to conclusions but obediently follow the official story...

Why isn't the loss of lives and 1300 missing persons in Colorado at this very moment receiving as much attention?

2 cents.

Sad part is that flooding does not help gun control but I am sure you will hear Al Gore talking about it in the next 6 months. Very sad state of affairs.


Live feed transmission is talking about a mass casualty setup being created to deal with wounded in triage. Remember that they first reported 2-3 shot at Sandy Hook in the first half hour also. Really hoping this is not as bad as it can be.

If this is a diversionary type event, it certainly is working well now, isn't it?.
Is that Washington D.C. where this is happening?, shipyard along the water maybe?. Sure is a lot of activity on the scanner for it to be only one supposed shooter...
