A police spokesman confirmed to the Washington Post that a Washington, D.C. police officer was among at least three to four people who were shot Monday morning at the Navy Yard there.
The spokesman told the Post that the officer was shot near a room in Navy Sea System Command’s (NAVSEA) headquarters, where a lone gunman barricaded himself after allegedly shooting at least three people on Navy Yard grounds.
The U.S. Navy has so far only confirmed that one individual has been injured.
