Hi I'm Katie -- brown marketed Defcon three this is a special addition to talk about the ongoing situation rapidly developing situation the Washington navy yard.
Where at least one gunman has fired on.
People employees bear we're waiting to hear reports and in the present at her eyes trying to get a press conference later -- our -- -- -- this or other traffic for joining me right now.
-- -- -- -- He has a retired NYPD detective now I gotta tell you my personal story on us this morning as I heard from my -- a naval officer.
And Mobile, Alabama -- she's at sea and she got in touch with me saying.
I don't know remarking -- is he with on his way to the navy yard this morning she could not reach him.
She has subsequently region as have I he did not arrive at the navy yard -- turned around.
But the navy yard the significance of this building -- is -- at the building itself and also the compound.
Besides the fact that -- the navy's oldest facility.
It's got the buildings to go back to George Washington's time soon if this she naval operations lives there that's his residence in other words he's on the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
He's the top naval officer he is the senior -- officer of United States navy.
He was in his residence this morning here safely evacuated.
But it's also the building where the attack seems to take place as a sea systems command.
That is where the navy.
Plans build engineers all of that cutting edge technology.
On America may -- ships submarines and aircraft.
When you look at this.
What it what strikes you is different about this during usual -- down -- and why parents -- This is this should be very heavily secure location apple released with all these all these different units -- station there.
All right so.
A gunman getting on this basis got -- gotta be something really hard to do -- of her and then I really can't see the security venal -- in the situation like this.
So apparently I'm -- you think that maybe this guy might be.
And louder but members of the NATO air right now I've been to that face a number of times I've been the official residence of then chief of naval operations.
And certainly since September 11 that facility as well as any -- for any military facility certainly maybe facility just walk up to the -- have -- have a look around.
Exactly you either -- -- -- have a bad your military or civilian contractor who works there.
Or you have an appointment with somebody and if you have an appointment.
It's not just one that you called up and made you've made in advance they give you giving your Social Security number probably exactly somebody's coming to escort you from that.
Visitors check in area there with you the entire time.
So when you or something like that doesn't sound like somebody -- shooting their way out.
Now I don't think that -- although you have -- witnesses said that that when he approached the building where what we're talking about he just started issue.
Not enough for me looking at this from my perspective and everything that I'm seeing here is is that it's a good chances is probably some kind of an employee.
It doesn't sound like it's a disgruntled employee to me.
All right I want it wouldn't be.
Well the basis of the facts I mean.
This guy started shooting right away usually disgruntled employee with that -- do -- that we'll target specific people.
I didn't like my god -- -- also get into the building should couple people and then they -- to kill themselves.
Or the barricade himself for this guy did okay.
It looks like the police -- exchange round for this guy.
We don't know he was -- or not apparently word now is that that the the shooter is dead I don't know where this second shooter information came from.
I'm I tend to think that would happen if they might have gotten to a different descriptions of -- -- it.
Here's what they -- -- we are fed up parts out of proxies channel is out.
From someone who it's who's talked to people in the emergency rooms at a hospital there apparently victims coming in with two different -- Bullets in their bodies so that would lead them to believe that it's -- -- Well you probably could but -- this guy could have also multiple weapons out there you know which is definitely a possibility.
So I guess -- waiting to see apparently they're gonna have some kind of -- news conference shortly.
All right Tom where -- are they gonna tell us is -- second shooter and description and this guys wanted or the intelligence all over.
-- the people I've talked to out of her in touch with people in the building.
They are still on -- they're there were not told to evacuate they were told to shelter in place right somehow lock your doors stay where you are down move.
A few people have gotten out who apparently got out before the shelter in place.
Warning went out but would that lead you to believe there's something else dealt a trance.
-- -- commanded -- this situation is definitely fluid and as you can usually see like.
When it when it when there's an end of the shooting incident police come downstream market due to be right right apparently Steve this -- reporting that's not happening.
All right so they they look like they're definitely on lockdown they're probably gonna trying to ascertain if they -- you look at all video now.
Because I'm sure there's video all over the space yeah all right look at that that video and maybe somebody saw a second shooter on video.
I don't know we still need to find that out and -- so they're probably just going by descriptions that might have from victims and -- just being more safer -- than sorry.
Yeah I think -- at abortion stand by Harry and Harry how.
Retired and Markey.
