Reports are likely to change following this chaotic scene. There are dead, people in critical condition, and many wounded. Nearby buildings are on lockdown, including schools. Security forces are at the location and President Obama is expected to hold a press conference to provide updates. Those in Washington D.C., are shaken to the core.
