WASHINGTON (AP) — A man who works at the Washington Navy Yard says he and some co-workers encountered a gunman this morning in a long third-floor hallway of the building where they work. Todd Brundige says the man "just turned and started firing."
Co-worker Terrie Durham says the gunman fired toward her and Brundige, but that he "aimed high and missed." She says the gunman said nothing.
Rick Mason, who's a civilian working for the U.S. Navy, says a gunman was shooting from a fourth-floor overlook in the hallway outside his office, aiming down at people in the building's cafeteria. He says he could hear the shots, but couldn't see the gunman.
Shortly after the gunfire, he says someone on an overhead speaker told workers to seek shelter -- and later, to head for the gates at the complex.
Patricia Ward says she was in the cafeteria when the shooting began. She says she heard three gunshots in a row, followed by several more. She says, "We just started running." Security officers were directing people out of the building, with guns drawn.
