An employee inside Navy Yard told local media that alarms were sounding and the buildings were on lockdown Thursday amid reports of an active shooter.
The US Park Police and Washington, D.C., police are responding. No casualties have been reported.
Thirteen people died in a shooting at the Navy Yard in September 2013.
The facility, the country’s oldest Naval installation, is located less than a mile south of the US Capitol.
