Police are responding to reports of shots fired, and an FBI spokeswoman says there's at least one victim.

Since he’s a black male the media will pamper him and play down the story. I would suspect he’s some low wage civil service employee pissed off that he didn’t get promoted.
If not look for a “mentally handicapped” “war” veteran that came back from “war” and suffered with PTSD. Makes no difference that he could have been an office worker who last shot an M-16 in basic training. In the media’s mind, the military turned him into a trained killer and anyone this black vet kills because of his “mental problems” is justified. If we were white the media would immediately be calling for his hanging.

I am either running away, setting a trap, or attacking.

“Shelter in place” = wait around to be the next victim.

CNN reporter just said they have been instructed not to say anything about shooter’s description anymore.

Whoa! That means 'Muslim' or black - right?

She will be fine, but you have to tell her Mom...you do know that..right? They will not send in EMS to danger zone I am sure. They will bring victims to them to be transported. Try not to worry.

Isn't it about time this story became about something more important - like renewed demands for more gun control against those dangerous assault weapons which are so readily available to the unbalanced wacko or terrorists?

I eagerly await Schmuck Schumer and Diane Feinswine (and many other Washington dignitaries) lining up at the nearest microphones, which I confidently predict will be before 4 PM and before the bodies of the victims are cold...

I usually wait before I point the figure, but 2 shooter at a military base does seem indicate a terrorist attack by you know who. But one never knows until the facts are out.

A HUGE clue that it’s ROP is if they initially refuse to NAME the perps for quite a while after their caught. You know...once the situation ‘cools down’, they’ll quietly name the perps.

I hate to say it, but it seems that CNN is much better on breaking news. Of course, once things die down it's better to switch before they start their leftist spin.

I find it interesting that within one hour of the initial shots being fired, DHS had a typed briefing out that it was not “terror related that they knew of”.

Exactly! The American people are getting sick of it too. I will guarantee this is Islamist or Islamist inspired terror attack.

At this point, from the scanner and different news channels, it sounds as though there are two shooters down, the situation is still fluid and they just sent in the same people that helped catch the Boston bombers.

All this unconfirmed, just gathered from scanner and various news sources.

Channel 0-11 is the new channel that they are using for information on incident.
