VIDEO - WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Navy Yard has reopened for normal operations with returning employees saying they still felt unsettled about the shooting there earlier this week in which a gunman killed 12 people.
Some employees who streamed by the red brick wall of the Navy Yard said it's too soon for them to talk about the shootings. Others said it will take a while to get past the tragedy.
The Navy installation re-opened at 6 o'clock this morning. Traffic was blocked from reaching the main gate for a time because a tractor-trailer tried to make a U-turn and its load shifted.
A Navy spokeswoman says it will be a regular work day except for the building where the shootings occurred and the base gym, which the FBI is using as a staging area.
