High alert. A massive police response at the U.S. Naval Yard in Washington, D.C. following reports of gunfire.
An admiral says workers will start returning in February to the Washington Navy Yard building were 12 were fatally shot last year.
The names of the places are sadly familiar: Newtown, Aurora, Virginia Tech, Columbine, and Nickel Mines, Penn. After mass shootings made each of those names synonymous with tragedy, officials demolished, closed or altered the buildings where the killings took place to soften painful associations, especially among survivors.
Employees who work at the Washington Navy Yard’s building 197, where a gunman killed 12 people last month, will not be affected by the government shutdown.
