WASHINGTON, September 16. (Itar-Tass) – At least three assailants opened fire at a U.S. Navy yard in Washington, D.C. The incident has left ten casualties with many more wounded, which are currently being evacuated by helicopters, as reported by the local police.
Law enforcement officials stated that one shooter has already been taking down, the other two remain at large. The media has reported that one gunman has been pinned down between stories of the building; one assailant wore military uniform.
U.S. Navy has neither confirmed nor denied this.
