This is so sad! It seems there is one tradgedy after another. This time it happened on our own military site miles away from the White House. I think it was done for a reason, however I have no idea what reason that may be and I know it can't be a good reason. Here are the facts of the shooting according to CBS News:
"WASHINGTON: As many as two gunmen launched an attack Monday morning inside the Washington Navy Yard, spraying gunfire on office workers in the cafeteria and in the hallways at the heavily secured military installation in the heart of the nation's capital, authorities said. At least 13 people were killed.
One gunman was dead after he fired on a police officer, and police hunted for a second possible attacker who may have been disguised in a military-style uniform, authorities said. The gunman was killed by police during the confrontation.
A law enforcement official told CBS News' Pat Milton the suspected shooter apparently was discovered with a handgun, an AR-15 assault rifle, and a shotgun with him and was wearing dark blue clothing.
"We are confronting yet another mass shooting," President Obama said Monday during remarks that were intended to address the financial crisis. "And today it happened on a military installation in our nation's capital."
Investigators said they had not established a motive for the shooting rampage, which unfolded less than four miles from the White House. As for whether it may have been a terrorist attack, Mayor Vincent Gray said: "We don't have any reason to think that at this stage."
The FBI took charge of the investigation. The dead gunman was identified as Aaron Alexis, age 34, from Fort Worth, Texas.
While Alexis' motive is still not clear, officials said he is a former avionics electrician with the U.S. Navy. He had been arrested at least twice previously: once in Seattle for malicious mischief, and once in Fort Worth in 2010 for discharging a firearm in public. He has lived in New York City also.
Alexis was carrying an ID card belonging to Rollie Chance, who was placed on administrative leave last October. Chance told officials he does not know Alexis.
President Barack Obama mourned the shooting and promised "whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible."
In addition to the dead, at least three people were wounded."
May God have mercy!
