Reports are now coming out that there were possibly three shooters at the DC Navy Yard shooting this morning. One is confirmed dead and two other
suspects are being sought by DC Police, one male white and other male black, and both possibly wearing military fatigues.
There are now seven confirmed dead and several injuries in the shooting.
At least 7 dead in Navy yard attack
With three shooters this would make this more than just a work place shooting, and the more that comes out right now, it seems this was more than a
random attack. One could assume that with three shooters there should have been more than only 12 people shot.
I watched two witnesses interviewed said they were making their way out of a back door with a group and they saw a shooter down the hall, far enough
away that they couldn’t describe him (except that he was a tall black man), but were able to see him raise his rifle in their direction and pull the
trigger. The woman witness said that his shots went above their heads into the wall, and they then ran out the door.
This makes me wonder if the shooter actually intended to kill them or just scare them out of the building. I’m just throwing my own ideas out there,
much too early in the investigations to know anything at all, but it seems to me that this was a coordinated attack and maybe they had specific
targets or types of targets. We don’t actually know who the victims are yet, but only 12 people shot, two of which were officers seems like a rather
low number for three shooters. We’ve seen some really high numbers in some of these rampages.
The witnesses are describing what sounded like several series’ of three shots, which may or may not be bursts of three shots from M-16’s, rather
than AR-15. If this is true, then they could have fired off a lot more rounds than the usual attack.
Other things coming out that point to a coordinated attack are that the suspects may have been dressed in military uniforms. You have to have a
sticker on your vehicle and proper ID to get into this military facility, plus other security clearances for certain levels of the shipyard, including
this building 197 where the shooting took place.
Why the Washington DC Navy Yard…maybe because we’ve been building up our military for a possible Navy attack on Syria.
Like I previously said. It's way too early to really know anything except that this doesn't appear to be your usual shooting rampage we've been
witness of. Maybe I'm wrong.
