    Just off the top of my head --

    1) Unless the officer killed was one of the gate guards (where the hell was his backup / partner?), the shooter had to be on the grounds.

    2) If he was armed and on the grounds, he either belongs there or someone (security) f*cked up big time.

    If a lone guy can walk in on a military installation an get to the 4th floor roof or window some one screwed up.

    Thinking about this and I feel like putting on my "Sherlock Holmes" hat with a large dose of sarcasm.

    Following the blatant distortion from the media, I deduce the following:

    1) The shooter(s) have to be from Virginia because they have a Republican Governor. D.C. and Maryland have liberal Democrats and have touch gun control laws to ensure law abiding citizen's can't have weapons.

    2) The law enforcement agencies in this country are completely incompetent. Shooters (just how many are there?) get into a "secure" government installation that has manned gates, dogs, and each vehicle is searched. Not only do they get in when they shouldn't be able to, but they take in multiple weapons.

    3) Or ... It wasn't Virginia law abiding citizen's that own weapons, but some of those terrorist military people running amok and terrorizing innocent civilians.

    4) Just because it follows recall elections in Colorado (by less than a week) where two loyal "for the children" Democrat senators lost their offices, does not mean the current administration decided they needed another shooting event to bring focus back to their policy of confiscating all firearms "for the children".

    Disclaimer: I deplore the needless loss of life and my sympathies go with the survivors and families of victims. BUT I DON'T TRUST GOVERNMENT AS FAR AS I CAN THROW A BATTLESHIP.

    i thinking where is the security? were they all taking a nap?

    i would expect the "days of september" to be the highest alert level --the terrorist have launched an attack just about every year during this month--WHY no extra guards and patrols?

    1biggun - there are black's that have a lighter complexion. In the past I had worked in places where over 90% of the employees were black, one of the things I learned is that there are dark skinned blacks and light skinned blacks. Also from discussions I overheard from these "black" employees was that often times the dark skinned blacks didn't trust the light skinned blacks and vice versa. I noticed this (and heard this from blacks) in a few different states that I've lived in.

    Just sayin'.
    "To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em."

    WASHINGTON -- Thirteen people were killed and several others wounded Monday when a gunman identified as Aaron Alexis, 34, a civilian contractor from Fort Worth, opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard, authorities said.

    Washington Mayor Vincent Gray said the death toll, including a gunman, was 13. The situation remained fluid, and officials cautioned that the death toll could change.

    Washington Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier said one shooter was dead and one police officer was wounded in an "engagement" with a gunman at Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters. Federal officials identified the dead shooter as Alexis.

    Earlier Monday, Lanier said authorities had "multiple" pieces of information indicating there could have been more shooters. One was later cleared, but police still were searching for a man wearing a military-style uniform and carrying a long gun, she said.

    Lanier said the FBI was taking the lead in the investigation. Gray said that as far as officials know, the shooting was an isolated incident.

    A federal law enforcement official told USA TODAY that Alexis was armed with an AR-15, a shotgun and a handgun. The federal official, who requested anonymity due to the fluid nature of the investigation, said there is no firm evidence that anyone else fired weapons in the attack.

    The official said surveillance video of the shooting was being reviewed, and that scores of investigators were interviewing hundreds of witnesses.

    OBAMA: Calls the victims 'patriots'

    FLIGHTS: Airport resumes operations after Navy shooting

    STORY: Yard is home to Sea Systems Command

    Alexis may have gained entry into the Navy Yard by using someone else's identification card, said a federal law enforcement official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly.

    Terrie Durham, an executive assistant at Naval Sea Systems Command, said a fire alarm sounded and she was trying to leave with a group of people when they encountered a shooter.

    "We couldn't see his face, but we could see him with the rifle," Durham said. "He raised and aimed at us and fired. And he hit high on the wall."

    Rick Mason, a program management analyst, said a gunman began shooting from a fourth-floor overlook in the hallway outside his office. He said the gunman was aiming down at people in the building's cafeteria on the first floor.

    Patricia Ward, a logistics management specialist, said she was in the cafeteria. "I heard three shots -- pow, pow, pow. Thirty seconds later I heard four more shots."

    Then panic, as people tried to get out of the cafeteria. "A lot of people were just panicking. There were no screams or anything because we were in shock."

    Dave Sarr, an environmental engineer, was walking down a nearby street when he saw people running from the Navy Yard. Sarr has seen an evacuation drill a few days earlier at the Navy Yard. "At first I thought it was another drill," Sarr said. "Then I saw an officer with his weapon drawn."


    President Obama made a brief statement, describing the victims as "patriots" and promising a thorough investigation. "I made it clear to my team that I want the investigation to be seamless," Obama said.

    The first news broke with the Navy reporting on its Twitter feed that there was an "active shooter" at Building 197 at the Navy Yard, and that three shots had been fired at 8:20 a.m. ET. The Navy later reported deaths and injuries, but details remained fluid.

    Flights at nearby Washington Reagan National Airport were disrupted, with all departures temporarily halted at the airport.

    At MedStar Washington Hospital Center, chief medical officer Janis Orlowski said the hospital was treating three victims -- a male D.C. police officer and two women.

    She said the police officer had multiple gunshot wounds to his legs and was in surgery. One woman was shot in the shoulder, and the other in the head and hand. All are expected to survive, she said.

    The Navy Yard is located on the banks of the Anacostia River, a few blocks from the Nationals baseball stadium. It's in an urban area where the development of new parks, shops and apartments has been ongoing.

    The Washington Nationals baseball team canceled Monday night's game against the Atlanta Braves. A parking lot at Nationals Stadium was being used as a site for families seeking to reunite with loved ones who work at the Navy Yard.

    The city had not decided how long the area by the Navy Yard, including the baseball stadium, would remain closed to the public, said Keith St. Clair, communications director for the deputy mayor for public safety and justice.

    Naval Sea Systems Command is the largest of the Navy's five system commands and accounts for a quarter of the Navy's entire budget. It builds, buys and maintains the Navy's ships and submarines and their combat systems.

    NAVSEA headquarters' security requires guests to pass through turnstiles that are watched by security guards before entering. Visitors must also turn in their phones and other electronic recording devices upon entry.

    Capt. Michael Graham, who works at NAVSEA, was running late this morning and by the time he arrived at work the base was already in a lockdown.

    Graham said he had never seen a shelter-in-place drill in his five years at NAVSEA.

    "I've never seen a shelter-in-place, I've seen the normal fire drills things like that, but never a shelter-in-place drill," said Graham. "Normally the drills you have are to get out of the building."

    Marine Barracks Washington also put its base on a partial lockdown, only allowing Marines to leave if they were on official business, said Capt. Jack Norton, a base spokesman. A small contingent from Marine Barracks Washington's Guard Company serves at the Navy Yard, Norton said.
