A spokeswoman for Medstar Washington Hospital Center said the D.C. hospital has already received three people wounded in Monday's shooting at the Navy Yard and "we've been told to expect more."
Saying the service had suffered a "horrific blow," Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus on Monday vowed Navy personnel would rally as a family from the attack that left 13 people dead at one of the Navy's oldest and most storied bases.
Just hours after the deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, gun control advocates tried to reignite the national debate over gun laws that had only just subsided.
"But there's something wrong here when we have these multiple shootings. ... There is something wrong, and the only thing that I can say is we have to work together to get rid of it. I would like you to put my trauma center out of business," she said, her voice weakening from emotion. "We just cannot have, you know, one more shooting with, you know, so many people killed. We've got to figure this out. We've got to be able to help each other."
Despite the severity of the injuries — the police officer, who traded gunfire with the suspected assailant, required emergency surgery on his legs and one of the women was shot in the head and the hand — MedStar Chief Medical Officer Janis Orlowski said it was expected all three would survive.
