Associated Press

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Two officials say police are looking into the possibility of a second shooter at the Washington Navy Yard where several people were killed.

A Defense Department official and a law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation.

At least one gunman opened fire inside the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters, where about 3,000 people work just miles from the Capitol.

Among the wounded was a D.C. police officer, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.

At least 10 were wounded.
