Washington Navy Yard... again

I hope there is nobody on here at the Washington Navy Yard. They are on lockdown. Reports are out of shots being reported.

Wow, that's one hell of a false alarm if it is that.

Not in my experience! A Ford transit van backfired and it makes national breaking news.

Not passing judgment, but just a question on LEO tactics. Say this was a planned diversion, how would you untangle this mess to quickly respond to the subsequent situation at a different location?

Or an IED in the middle of the crowd? I have never been a fan of crowds but post 9/11 I try extra hard to avoid them.

I know that feeling, soft targets are groups of people watching something. Marathon Bombing illustrated that, I am constantly out of the way in situations like that

Having had friends involved in the first Navy Yard shooting, I am glad to see this one looks to be a prank call.

First thing that came to mind too. What a joke.

I'm not one to buy into conspiracy theories, but the whole event this morning smacks as more of a test than a prank call.
