“Six people were killed and several more were wounded Monday at the Washington Navy Yard when gunmen armed with assault rifles barged inside and opened fire,” nydailynews.com. “Police shot one of the intruders, who later died of his wounds, and were looking for “potentially two other shooters,” said Washington D.C. police Chief Cathy Lanier. ‘We have no reason to believe either was military,’ said Lanier, but both appear to be wearing uniforms of some kind . . . One is a white man armed with a handgun, last seen around 8:30 a.m. wearing a khaki Navy style uniform, the chief said. The other is a black man in his 50’s dressed in olive drab and carrying a ‘long gun’ of some kind.” wistv.com reports that President Obama has responded to the attack . . .
President Barack Obama is mourning what he called “yet another mass shooting” in the United States that he says took the life of American patriots.
Obama promised to make sure, quote, “whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.”
It was unclear whether the President included the “workplace violence” at Fort Hood and no mention of that whole Benghazi thing. Meanwhile, multiple shooters at a U.S. military installation with at least one gunman reportedly wearing a uniform? I don’t know about you but I think it’s a bit early to call this a “mass shooting” rather than a terrorist attack. Just sayin’ . . .
