Washington Navy Yard Incident/No More Rain/Fireworks Displays

WASHINGTON, DC (RNN) - Police gave the "all clear" after responding Thursday to a report of an active shooter at the Washington Navy Yard. An unnamed official told the Associated Press there had been no evidence of a shooting and no arrests. Navy security had seen two people jumping a fence near the building where gunfire had been reported, according to the AP. Earlier, the U.S. Navy tweeted that an order to shelter in place had been given, although no incident had been confirmed. A large number of law enforcement personnel arrived at the scene, many in tactical gear, along with other emergency responders. Security cleared the building and found no shooting suspect. The call came in about 7:40 a.m. ET, U.S. Park police told the Washington Post. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Scott Williams said in a CNN interview that he was in Building 197, the same building where a mass shooting took place in 2013, when he heard someone shout to evacuate the cafeteria.
