CBS NEWS: At Least 6 Dead In Washington Navy Yard Shooting

Source: AP / CBS News

WASHINGTON – As many as 10 people have been shot at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday morning, and at least three and as many as six of those victims died from their wounds, federal and local officials told CBS News.

The Navy has confirmed that a gunman has died in the incident at the Naval Sea Systems Command building, reports CBS News correspondent David Martin. The identity of the shooter is unknown at this time. Officials had been searching for a possible second shooter, although there has been no confirmation that a second shooter exists.

An official told CBS News the number of victims could be higher because it is a “chaotic scene.” Officials have so far provided limited information on the health of the victims, and none have been identified because families must be notified first.

Witnesses described a gunman opening fire from the fourth floor, aiming down on people in the first-floor cafeteria. Others said a gunman fired at them in a third-floor hallway.
