The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Two Navy officials say at least six people have died in a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity on Monday because they were not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.

A Defense Department official and a federal law enforcement official have said a shooter had died, though it was not immediately clear how.

Police are also looking into the possibility of a second shooter.

As many as 10 were wounded.
