WASHINGTON (AP) — Facts and figures about the Washington Navy Yard, site of a mass shooting Monday that left 13 people dead, including the gunman:
The Washington Navy Yard sits on a 41-acre (16.6-hectare) site on the Anacostia River in Southeast Washington, four blocks from the Nationals Park baseball stadium and about 1 ½ miles (2.4 kilometers) from the U.S. Capitol. It's surrounded by a fast-growing residential neighborhood.
More than 18,000 people work at the Washington Navy Yard, including 3,600 military and 14,500 civilian personnel.
The Navy Yard is the Navy's oldest shore establishment and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The shooting took place at Building 197, the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command. About 3,000 people work there.
The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) is the largest of the Navy's five systems commands, with a force of 60,000 military, civilian and contract personnel and a budget of nearly $30 billion, about one-fourth of the Navy's entire budget.
