UPDATE: 3;30 p.m. Aaron Alexis, 34, of Fort Worth, Texas has been identified as a suspected shooter. Alexis was a civilian contractor. He reportedly used the identification card of a former Navy Yard employee to gain entrance to the complex and the building.
UPDATE:
3 P.M. et – Police now say that at least 12 people were killed. Washington Mayor Vincent Gray said that no motive has been found for the murders but that the massacre was a terrorist attack.

“This is not over,” Rear Admiral John Kirby, the U.S. Navy’s chief spokesman, told reporters. “The building is still in lockdown, as are other buildings. Still being treated as an active search. No one is moving right now.”

UPDATE: 1:30 p.m. ET – D.C. police are searching for possibly two additional shooters at large, one described as a black male wearing khakis, a beret and carrying a handgun, the other a white male dressed in olive drab military style uniform, carrying a long gun.  Authorities are saying that although the possible shooters are dressed in military style clothing, they are not believed to be members of the military.

UPDATE: 11:40 a.m. ET – there are multiple reports that a shooter is dead.

UPDATE: 11:20 a.m. ET at least eight people are confirmed dead by two police sources.

Washington and federal police reportedly have shot and wounded two gunmen and looking for a possible third attacker after they killed at least four people and wounded 8-10 others at the Washington Navy Yard in the capital late Tuesday morning.

One of the gunman, dressed in black and armed with an AR-15 assault rifle, had been holed up inside Building 197, the Naval Sea Command Headquarters. Approximately 3,000 workers employed in the complex rushed to shelters during the shooting. At least one of the shooters reportedly was wearing army fatigues.

The Associated Press reported that an eyewitness said the gunmen began shooting at the first-floor cafeteria from the fourth floor that overlooks the area.

Authorities shut down Ronald Reagan Airport as a precautionary measure, but flights since have been resumed. Area schools were placed on lockdown.

The Navy Yard  hosts one of the Navy’s five system commands and builds ships and submarines.
The White House stated, “The President directed his team to stay in touch with our federal partners, including the Navy and FBI, as well as the local officials. We urge citizens to listen to the authorities and follow directions from the first responders on site.”

    You are a soul-less hate-filled idiot. A tragedy like this strikes and your first thought isn't for your suffering fellow human beings––but how can I score a cheap, stupid political point off this. Well, congratulations! You've achieved your ambition to burrow lower than a snake's belly in a wagon rut.

    Do not jump to any conclusions regarding the number of alleged assailant(s),number of people killed and wounded and faith of the alleged killer(s). These shootings are truly a nightmare in our region.

  7. Ronnie James says:

    electricbook so you don't give a crap about what he does. No wonder the country is in such bad shape.

  8. apparently, the obamas are hosting a latin festival tonite. sure hope this terrorist act that killed (now 12 people confirmed dead) and maimed dozens of others won't interfere with the bumbler-in-chief and his merriment. the guy is like prince prospero. only dumber.

    there are 12 people confirmed dead now. the white male has been cleared. they are still looking for the black male with the handgun. i am sure when the motive is discovered it will be no surprise except to obama and his minions.

  11. James Johnston Ferguson says:

    my deepest sympathy goes out to everyone involved in Washington !

  12. ButterflyQueen says:

    Wasn’t it just yesterday or the day b4 that Obama was once again calling for confiscation of guns? .. and right on cue they have another killing spree.  Rather obvious.

  13. Anonymous says:

    surely military people must always be on alert as there might be some other individual or group who will attempt in some other military base. Never forget that there is always an enemy within.

  14. Éva Cornides says:

    …miért történhet meg ilyesmi egy olyan bázison, melyet (elvileg) szigorúan védenek?

  15. How many more gun-downs do we need to realize that freely handing out weapons to our citizenry is NOT the best idea? For those who need more convincing, here's a more personal account of the Washington Naval Base incident: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=IH1Q30KD6DX4&preview=article&linkid=4a8005ba-90ce-4093-ab4e-7dc94806516e&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d
