Obama Reacts to Shooting as Death Toll Rises
United States President Barack Obama reacted Monday to news that shooters had targeted workers at the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington D.C.
“We are confronting yet another mass shooting, and today it happened on a military installation in the nation’s capital,” Obama said.
Those who were targeted knew the dangers of battle abroad, but “today they faced the unimaginable violence that they wouldn’t have expected here at home,” he said.
