Active shooter alert at DC Navy Yard

Editor's note: The Washington Navy Yard was the scene of a 2013 shooting in which military contractor Aaron Alexis killed 12 civilian workers before he was fatally shot by police. It was later disclosed that the firm which performed Alexis' background check knew he lied about a 2004 arrest, but granted him clearance anyway. This led to Justice Department and Congressional reviews of safety at government facilities, and suspected fraud in granting of clearances. - Tricia
