It's definitely the best course of action for the police to not rule out the possibility that there may still be a shooter at large and to take all necessary precautions.


    That's exactly what they are doing.

    I hope your friend is ok. Do you know which building your friend works in? If your friend isn't a NAVSEA employee, chances are he/she is safe.

    Thank goodness they have cancelled the Nationals/Braves game tonight. A lot of the parking is around the perimeter of the Navy yard.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Friend is safe! Thanks for the concern everyone.
    Sometimes I think I lost something really important to me, and it turns out I already ate it.

    I have tickets for tomorrow night, it wouldn't surprise me if it's still off-limits with ongoing investigation. Missing a game isn't much compared to the latest tragedy.

    They've announced a split double header tommorrow so it is still on as of now. Right now, they are using the parking lots for relatives to pick up people being evacuated from the lock down areas so that should be done tonight, and I guess it is a few blocks away so it shouldn't disturb the investigation in the Yard. I am going tomorrow night too.

    I was watching the news for updates on this and sadly learned that the number of lives lost is now up to 13.

    Apparently the gunman had served in the Navy for four years, from 2007 until his discharge in 2011 and just recently began work as a military contractor. Not sure if this has any relevance at all nor if he did, indeed, "target" his victims as reports have said he seemed to do. In the end, it doesn't really matter much, because no matter what the motive was, it is still a tragedy for the victims and their families.

    That doesn't include Boston since not a shooting? Or does 3 dead not qualify as a mass killing?

    They seem to have decided to make the criteria four or more. Considering the wounded that's kind of random I think.

    The police have cleared the other two suspects, so it seems the dead gunman is the only one that did this.

    I live in Arlington and work at FEMA in DC by L'Enfant Plaza/Federal Center. The Navy Yard is a ways away but close enough that it was hard being at work today.

    I think security is going to get A LOT tougher in military bases and federal facilities. I wonder how scrutinized contractors are going to get now with their employees.

    And that doesn't take into account the dozens of others that happen on a daily basis. Good Grief...I have absolutely nothing to say.

    Why are they breaking down mass killings since Obama took office? What does any of it have to do with our President?

    I wondered that too, it didn't seem to have any rhyme or reason but it answered DFJ's questions so I posted it. It also provides some perspective on these incidents over recent years.

    I'm reading the Washington Post now and they report that the shooter had a Navy Yard access card as an employee of a contractor. So it doesn't sound like there was any failure in security.
