My former business partner has a contract there. Her employees were inside the building where the shootings occurred. Thank God she was outside the gates when it happened. She was on her way inside the building. Her employees? One who used to work for me dove under her desk and was saved. Her nearby colleague is one of the two women in the hospital - expected to be fine. A bullet grazed her skull, but didn't penetrate it. Unfortunately, no one can find or has heard from a third colleague, and he is feared dead. It is known that the guy who sat next to him is dead.
One DC police officer is in surgery now. He has pretty extensive leg wounds. It is not known whether he will walk again.
Update 9/17: The missing colleague? He died. Hug your family, friends, and pets.
