UPDATE 20: Dead shooter identified as Aaron Alexis, 34, of Texas. One suspect police thought was involved has been found and released:

FOX NEWS – A gunman suspected in the killing of at least eleven people at a Navy building in Washington has been identified as Aaron Alexis, 34, of Texas, Fox News has learned, although police were searching for a second possible suspect in the attack.

Police were operating under the theory that the gunman may not have acted alone, although one person being sought was later found and cleared. Alexis was killed in the shooting, which broke out just after 8 a.m. at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters in southeast Washington.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier told reporters that 12 people died in the early morning incident at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters in southeast Washington. There were conflicting reports on the number of victims and the number of gunmen in the ensuing hours, although a federal law enforcement official told Fox News that one shooter has died. Police said as many as two additional gunmen wearing military-style uniforms may still be at large and thousands of workers at the building were told to “shelter in place” until officials could safely evacuate them.

“This is not over,” Rear Admiral John Kirby, the U.S. Navy’s chief spokesman, told reporters. “The building is still in lockdown, as are other buildings. Still being treated as an active search. No one is moving right now.”

UPDATE 19: This from the Chief of Police at a press conference: 12 Confirmed dead; Others injured including police (not all gun shot wounds); Suspects still on the loose: White Male wearing tan military naval uniform wearing beret-style, black male 40-50 years old wearing olive military who is 5’10” with gray hair on side of head.
