Omar Grant, a civilian employee at the Washington Navy Yard, was on the first floor of the atrium Monday morning when shots rang out around him. Grant was with his colleague, Lindwood, a visually-impaired employee who uses a walking stick.
“We heard two shots and started wondering if that was the sound of someone dropping something or if they were really shots,” Grant told Yahoo News. “We heard three more shots and that’s when people started running out of the building and getting the hell out of there.”
While others ran for the exits, Mr Grant took Lindwood by the arm and carefully led him to safety.
