WASHINGTON (September 19, 2013)--The Washington Navy Yard reopened to workers Thursday, three days after it a mass shooting in which a gunman killed 12 people.
Gates at the Navy installation reopened at 6 a.m. Thursday, but traffic was blocked from reaching the main gate because a tractor-trailer driver tried to make a U-turn, and the rig’s load shifted.
The truck was blocking the road in front of the Navy Yard early Thursday.
Navy spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Sarah Flaherty said Thursday would be a regular work day, except for in Building 197, where the shootings occurred, and the base gym.
She says the gym is being used as a staging area for the FBI to investigate Monday's rampage in which former Navy reservist Aaron Alexis gunned down 12 people before being killed by police.
