Navy Yard shooting: Authorities confident only one gunman involved
WASHINGTON (AFP) - US authorities probing the shooting spree at Washington's Navy Yard, which left 13 people dead and eight injured, said Monday that one man only carried out the killings.
"We don't have any evidence or indication at this stage that there was another shooter, even though we haven't completely ruled that out," said Washington mayor Vincent Gray.
Police chief Cathy Lanier stressed that: "We do now feel comfortable that we have the single and sole person responsible for the loss of life inside of the base today.
"If anything changes as we continue to go forward, we certainly will make that available to the public," she told a briefing, "but... again, we are lifting the shelter in place warning."
