Updated 12:43 p.m. (CBS/AP) WASHINGTON D.C. - As many as 10 people have been shot after a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday morning, federal officials said.

At least six of those victims died from their wounds, federal and local officials told CBS News.

A gunman was neutralized, officials said, and security personnel are searching for a second gunman, although there has been no corroboration so far as to whether a second gunman exists.

The Navy has confirmed that a gunman has died, reports CBS News correspondent David Martin. He is believed to have acted alone. The shooter's name has not been released, but officials told CBS News he was a civilian Navy employee who had job issues earlier this year, although further details are not yet available.

A law enforcement official told CBS News' Pat Milton the shooter apparently had a handgun, an AR-15 assault rifle, and a shotgun with him and was wearing dark blue clothing.

Speaking to reporters, Metropolitan police chief Cathy Lanier confirmed that one MPD officer was shot in "engagement" with the shooter inside the Navy Yard. One shooter believed to be involved has died, she confirmed.

Lanier said police are searching for two possible other shooters that may be dressed in military-style uniforms.

"The big concern for us right now is we have potentially two other shooters we have not located at this point," Lanier said at a press conference.

She described one possible shooter as a white male last seen around 8:35 or 8:40 this morning wearing a khaki or tan Navy-style uniform and a beret, armed with a handgun. Another possible shooter was described as a black male about 50 years old who may be carrying a long gun. Lanier said the man was possibly dressed in an olive-colored military-style uniform.

"We have no information to believe either of those folks are military personnel, but we do have information that hose persons are wearing military-style uniforms," Lanier said.

Eight civilians, one D.C. officer and one base security officer were among the victims, reports CBS affiliate WUSA. An officer was reportedly shot twice in the leg. The U.S. Park Police helicopter medevaced one person from the scene, reports the station.

An official told CBS News the number of victims could be higher because it is a "chaotic" scene.

Speaking to reporters, Dr. Janis Orlowski, the chief medical officer at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said that three victims had been transported to her hospital, and all were alert and expected to survive.

One of the victims was a male Metropolitan police officer who suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his legs, Orlowski said.

Another victim, a woman, suffered gunshot wounds to her head and hands, and a third victim, also a woman, suffered a gunshot wound to her shoulder.

Orlowski said the hospital was told to expect more victims but it wasn't clear whether more would be transported.

Police and emergency crews gathered Monday morning outside the heavily-guarded Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters building, where the shooting was reported.

Witnesses described a gunman opening fire from the fourth floor, aiming down on people in the first-floor cafeteria. Others said a gunman fired at them in a third-floor hallway.

Patricia Ward, who works at the Navy Yard, told reporters that she was in the cafeteria when she head three shots in quick succession and then four more shots.

"A lot of people were just panicking," Ward said. "No screams or anything, because we was just in shock."

The Navy says about 3,000 people work in the building. People inside the building have been directed to stay in place.

In a press release, the Navy said the shooting happened at approximately 8:30 a.m. ET.

Police are describing the shooter as a black male with a dark complexion, approximately five feet, ten inches to six feet tall, 170 pounds with a black shirt and black hat, reports the station.

United States Capitol Police said they are "providing mutual support & assistance to the Metropolitan Police Department" in a press release. They say the active shooter incident is "contained to the Navy Yard."

According to USCP, "Additionally, people may notice enhanced security operations being conducted by the USCP on the Capitol Grounds as a proactive, precautionary measure related to the active shooter incident at the Navy Yard."

Naval Sea Systems Command is the largest of the Navy's five system commands and accounts for a quarter of the Navy's entire budget.

It builds, buys and maintains the Navy's ships and submarines and their combat systems.

Police from multiple local and federal agencies were responding along with SWAT crews.

The FAA has issued a ground stop on all outgoing flights until further notice at Reagan National Airport for "security" reasons, and officials confirmed to WUSA that is related to the situation in the Navy Yard. Flights are operating as normal at Dulles Airport.

These shootings are so common no one hardly talks about them anymore. Which is kind of good in a way.

"We're looking for a white male in a Navy uniform, at a Naval installation."

Ha.

Seriously though, I find myself just a *little* bit curious that the currently established regime is arguably the most threat to private gun ownership the country has ever seen, and suddenly (comparatively) there are alllllllll these publicized shooting rampages.

Somebody's trying too hard.

I'm just waiting for the inevitable "we must ban guns" rallying cry that should be starting soon.

If that guy waited a couple of days to do this, they could have blamed GTA V.

I laughed my ass off at CNN yesterday, for hours they played a message in the ticker at the bottom of the screen that said the shooting suspect was using an AR-15 shotgun. LMAO

Michael Ritrovato was a friend of the suspect and said he met him at an event at a Buddhist temple four years ago. Alexis, according to Ritrovato, was an avid fan of military-style video games and would stay up all night to play.

"He played all the time. That was his passion," Ritrovato told ABC News. "It got so bad – was in his room all the time… he'd be late for work. He just didn't want to get up early. The reason was because he was staying up all night playing video games."

Well there you have it...the source of the problem is made crystal clear in that statement.

There is only one solution to prevent further tragedies like this...

We need to ban Buddhist temples!!!

It did.. it started back up the day before the attack and then went into full swing right after.

They should monitor some of the people in this community, would make for an interesting study. :kekeke:

He was activated to strike.

Victims all over 46yrs. Replaced with younger, cheaper, healthier citizens. Saving millions.

It was just a test.

Lol that lady said maybe someone should track how many hours people play games. Hello Steam?

Whats interesting with this story is that they just say "a game" where in the past these tards always singled out some specific game. This can only mean he was playing too much Smash Brothers on his Wii.
