Monday's Navy Yard shooting in Washington, D.C. has been updated in an ongoing search for the gunmen and total victims so far. Washington Post reports Sept. 16 that two gunmen are responsible for shooting 12 people Monday morning.
Four have been killed with eight wounded. Citing a senior Navy official who spoke with Reuters, one of the Navy Yard shooters has been detained. In the Washington Post report, the shooter is reportedly "down." Whether that means he was shot or detained is unknown. The second shooter is at large and police are trying to narrow down the suspect's whereabouts at the Navy installation.
The Navy Yard shooting happened at about 8:20 a.m. where about 3,000 work. It's unknown how many people were inside the building when the incident occurred.
Police at the scene said at least 8 civilians have been shot in addition to two police officers. One of the officers is a D.C. Metro Police officer who was shot in the leg and the other was an officer working at the Navy base.
In one report by NBC News, one of the shooters is described as black with dark complexion, standing between 5'10" and 6-feet tall, and about 170 pounds. He was believed to be barricaded somewhere and heavily armed. It's unclear if this was the shooting suspect a Navy official said has been detained by police.
The Navy Yard shooting temporarily shut down flights at Reagan National Airport.
