At least twelve people have been confirmed dead after a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday. One alleged shooter is dead, and federal officials are still searching for a possible second suspect. At this time police do not know the motives for the shootings. D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said he believes it not related to a terrorist attack. The incident began around 8:15 in the morning when shots were reported.
