    Several injured, according to the early reports.


    I used to work 5 blocks from there, but we recently moved right across the river, and there's surprisingly NO chatter about this in my office. Weird.

    Saw a picture on Twitter of a helicopter carrying an injured person away from the scene in a bucket. Shit's getting real over there.

    WaPo says 10 shot and that the shooter is hiding between the 3rd and 4th floors.

    Yeah. Just saw on Twitter (from the Post or AP, can't remember), 12 shot, 4 dead.


    Edit: NBCNews reporting 12 shot, 4 dead.
  5. More than one shooter. Looks like three.

    One down, one "contained" and another ....
    Several fatalities.

    As always, don't believe early details on the 24/7s.

    I have CNN on in the background as I work here at home, they have made no mention of more than one shooter.

    Post says 3 gunmen.
  9. So far WAPO is only outlet reporting more than one shooter. Everything else I have seen says lone gunman.
    However, Yahoo says gunman with a shotgun. As opposed to other reports of possible AR-15.

    WAPO also has a post right now that says Navy can't confirm multiple shooters

    I'll be shocked if there's more than one shooter.
