Update 3:40 p.m., Sept. 16 per NBCNews.com: One of the two Navy Yard shooting suspects at large has been cleared of any involvement. Police say they no longer consider the white male in his 40s a suspect. He was wearing a short-sleeve tan military style outfit and carrying a pistol, and was originally listed as a possible shooter still at large by D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier earlier on Monday morning.
As the body count in the Navy Yard shooters case mounts to 12, law enforcement originally announced that two more possible shooters are "still out there" and they are offering up descriptions so the public can help them locate the men.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier shared with the Washington Post and other news outlets early on Sept. 16 that one of the shooters still being sought was a white male in his '40s, allegedly, and he had on a beret and a tan military style uniform. That man has now been cleared as a suspect according to NBC News.
Lanier said the third shooter was a black male and approximately 40 to 52 years old, with gray sideburns, and he was wearing more of an olive green colored military uniform and carrying a long gun. He is still being sought by authorities.
Please call 202-727-9099 if you see someone fitting this description, or if you have any information about this shooting or the two suspects.
The police chief also stated that while there is no information to support that the two men allegedly involved are in the military, they are believed to still be wearing military-style uniforms.
