Survivors, families adjusting after Navy Yard Shooting
Washington, D.C. The survivors of a deadly shooting at a navy yard Tuesday said that the tragedy is starting to sink in.
Employees such as Navy art curator Gail Munro were just doors away when Aaron Alexis opened fire.
It was kind of sinking in all along, said Munro, because we knew shots had been fired and some people were down and you started thinking, who do I know thats in the building?
Munro ran, which police said likely saved her life.
12 people were killed in the shooting, and another eight injured. All of them were civilian employees. They are being remembered not only as Naval employees who loved their jobs, but also as people who loved their friends and families.
In the meantime, investigators are trying to figure out how Alexis maintained his security clearance despite recent mental problems, including paranoia and a sleep disorder.
