Terrie Durham came face-to-face with a Navy Yard gunman: "We were lucky he was a bad shot."
A Navy commander in the Navy Yard building when a deadly shooting broke out recalled Monday how a fellow military officer standing next to him was shot in the head as the two tried to escape.
Mr. Mason said on MSNBC that he heard gunfire and said a co-worker spotted a gunman on a fourth-floor interior balcony "standing there with a shotgun ... peering over the overlook down to the first floor area and shooting people as they were walking around the cafeteria."
Navy Yard worker Rick Mason said employees practice emergency evacuation drills several times a year.
