Via Dallas News:

At least 12 people were killed when as many as three gunmen opened fire Monday inside the Navy Yard, attacking office workers at a heavily guarded military facility in the heart of the nation’s capital.

Police were searching for two other men believed to have joined Alexis in the attack less than 4 miles from the White House. The suspects were reportedly disguised in military-style clothing, including one carrying a handgun and wearing a tan Navy-style uniform and a beret, D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier said. The other was said to carrying a long gun, wearing olive green garb.

Alexis was arrested in 2010 for discharging a firearm in Tarrant County, TX.
