12 Confirmed Dead In Navy Yard Shootings

12 confirmed dead in navy yard shootings

We had hoped the death toll would remain low in the Washington Navy Yard shootings, but it turns out to be worse than we feared.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has officially confirmed that there have been 12 known fatalities at the hands of the shooter.

A number of other injuries have also been reported, including to police officers.

As we previously reported, one gunman has been killed, but police are on the lookout for two more possible shooters- a white male and a black male, both between the ages of 40 and 50.

The FBI is now leading that ongoing investigation.

No motive is yet known for the killings, but our hearts go out to the families of the dozen innocents we lost today.

Santa Monica College Shooting: Multiple Fatalities, Suspected Gunman Reported Dead

Filed under: Barack ObamaSad SadViolenceScary!School

santa monica college shooting one dead four injured man in custody

Ugh!!! This is so unbearably sad!!!

We told you earlier that shots were fired at Santa Monica College today, while the President was nearby, and that several people were injured!!

Several victims were taken to nearby hospitals, some are in critical condition. We're even hearing reports of possible fatalities.

It's unclear exactly what happened, but nearby cars were apparently sprayed with bullets and nearby property was damaged by fire, though it isn't yet certain how those two tragedies are related, if at all.

Police Sgt. Rudy Flores says the shooter is in custody, and injured, but did not speak to the extent of those injuries.

Police took a man into custody who wore all black, with a phrase on the back of his shirt that reading "Life is a Gamble," but it isn't clear whether he is the injured suspect.

Shortly after the shots were fired, school officials went into lock-down mode, canceling final exams and cautioning all students to stay in their classroom.

In a Facebook statement, the college said:

"Due to the shooter situation on the main SMC campus, the college is on lock-down. This means that if you are on campus, stay out of open spaces, stay in doors, lock all doors and do not open the doors until you receive an all clear from college officials.

If you are off campus, do NOT come to campus.

Thank you for your cooperation. Stay tuned for updates."

Schools are supposed to be amongst the most sacred places on earth; our heart breaks whenever something so unfathomably sad like this happens.

Our thoughts our with everyone affected by today's tragedy!

UPDATE: Several sources now confirm the death of multiple victims, and also the death of the main suspect.

The L.A. Times suggests the suspect may have had an accomplice.

Prime Minister David Cameron Launches Campaign To Reduce Road Fatalities

Thank goodness.

Prime Minister David Cameron is joining Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button to launch the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety in order to reduce fatal crashes.

Road deaths are the number one killer of people over 10 worldwide, so action NEEDS to be taken!

This is a good first step!
