Aaron-AlexisWashington, D.C. – (Washington Post / 9/16/13 ) – The names of seven out of the 12 people killed in the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday have been released.

Multiple people were also injured in the shooting. A Navy announcement Monday afternoon put the number of those wounded at 14, DC Mayor Vince Gray said at a 10:15 press conference that only eight were injured in total.

One of those injured was DC Police Officer Scott Williams, who Gray said was “doing well” after being shot in the legs.
