SWAT officers swarmed the Naval Sea Systems Command building and as a result a shooter is dead. As a safety precaution, nearby schools, and other buildings have been locked down.

The Washington police are focused efforts to find “two people they described as suspects – a 50-year-old black man with a rifle, wearing a drab olive military uniform, and a white man with a pistol, wearing a short-sleeved, khaki uniform and a beret”.
