Lockdown But No Shots Fired At Washington Navy Yard

WASHINGTON (AP) _ District of Columbia police say that they’ve completed their search of the building where gunfire was reported at the Washington Navy Yard, and there is no evidence of a shooting and no sign of injuries.

Police say a call was placed from a building inside the naval installation about possible sounds of gunshots about 7:30 a.m.

City police along with federal and other agencies worked at the scene. Metropolitan Police said in a statement that they found no evidence of any shooting.

The reports of gunfire triggered a large response in keeping with protocols established after a gunman killed 12 workers in a 2013 massacre.
