At least one of the shooters is “down,” police said mid-morning, but it was unclear whether that means the suspect has been arrested or shot. They said the other suspect remains at large, and police believe they have pinned down one between the third and fourth floors of one of the buildings on the installation in Southeast Washington.

Police on the scene said at least eight civilians were shot, along with the two police officers. One is a D.C.

Except for the officer who was taken away by helicopter, all the other injured were being treated on the ground, police said.
