    breaking news on the BBC. links to follow.
    Lets just clarify right now that guns or the availability of guns, or the fetishization of guns, or anything having to do with guns clearly has no role in this shooting. With a gun. But heck, it could have been a hammer. But guns have nothing do do with this. For sure.

    From what is being said, there are more than two shooters, one of the perpetrators has been killed, therefore it doesn't sound like a disgruntled employee. Terrorist related possibly.

    They are qualifying the possibility of other shooters.

    The Washington Navy Yard was declared a "gun free zone" a few years ago.

    In fact after Obama ordered the bolts of the Marines rifles to be removed, civilian police now provide LE on the yard.

    Good thinking!!
    Didn't that happen in the first Die Hard movie?
