Up Nash he's a retired navy captain and Fox News military analyst -- Nash always good to see is there nice to be with -- You know this facility as well as as as many of us do when you -- -- several times give -- an idea take you through it if you can captain what's it like how easy to get in and if your not a military member what would you have to go through to get inside those gates.
You go through there are three main gates into the facility every one of them is guarded.
You present your identification.
Your under security camera when you go in the go arms the guards are armed.
Once they verify a 100% OID check.
Then they'll bring you win it they do random searches of the cars to have you -- your trunk.
So a lot of it just depends on the randomness or if they suspect something.
This facility now it's is interesting because a lot of the people who work in the facility.
Used to work in Crystal City and in other areas of Arlington and around the DC.
But security was judged about ten years ago to be insufficient especially after 9/11.
So it's it's it's kind of ironic that -- that a lot of people who are -- or they are now in that building.
Where -- where in the capital region before and now they've been concentrated and all brought into the navy yard about ten years ago.
Parking on that facility is extremely difficult you know and the reason why bring that up is that if the shooter.
Decided to drive on to the facility if he had proper ID and drove on to the facility.
He would have a parking spot to -- vehicle because I'm wondering how I got -- -- -- that the front gate he could have also just ditched the car and run into the building but the closest gate.
To building 197.
Is only about a hundred yards away.
Yeah so it's not that far from that entrance gate assuming he came in -- -- To the front door the building and then once -- in the building.
If you're armed you've got security guards with nine millimeters or thirty -- and you've got a semiautomatic rifle.
You're gonna -- the first first couple you come in contact with and then -- in the building.
And it's an important focus once you're inside the building -- action and that's key because we have reports about the shooter opening fire on people in a hallway as well as opening fire down on people pray for Florida cafeteria for what you know about getting in and there may be DC police being very tight lipped about this there may be victims in two separate areas is it feasible plausible.
In your estimation that we are talking about just one shooter they were looking for three now looking for two.
Is this possible to act the law.
Oh I I think it quite frankly that it is more probable that it is a lone shooter.
But because of all of the confusion.
They have to go with what they got on the initial evidence which was the security cameras but as soon as you start describing other people wearing uniforms.
If it if it starts to sound like you have a one shooter and then someone else who was possibly.
-- in the vicinity of the shooter may be they're trying to roll that out they've already got one of the two guys they've cleared that person so.
As the but the atrium that you were talking about that where you're shooting down on people.
Which used four heavy construction of ship that materials and things once upon a time before it was converted to an office building.
And when you go in there and you past security pass through security do all that.
You get to an area where you can look down on this atrium.
And so any any shooter who got to the third or fourth floor has a clear field -- fire everything down below on.
-- captain Chuck Nash great perspective on what you know about the building and military analyst.
We appreciate your insights sir as always thank you.
