WASHINGTON (AP) - At least six people are dead, after as many as three gunmen opened fire today inside one of the Navy's oldest buildings -- the Washington Navy Yard. It's at a former shipyard just a short distance from the U.S. Capitol building. Authorities say one of the gunmen is dead, and police are searching for two other men who are believed to have taken part in the attack. They were reportedly dressed in military-style clothing. In all, more than a dozen people were shot.
