DC hospital: 3 Navy Yard victims doing well

A US Park Police helicopter patrols over the US Navy Yard September 16, 2013 in Washington,DC.  An unidentified gunman opened fire at the US Navy Yard in Washington on Monday and wounded several people including two police officers, officials reported. Police and FBI agents descended on the area in force as helicopters buzzed overhead, amid reports the shooter was armed with an assault rifle and was on the loose in the complex. A Washington DC police officer and another law enforcement officer had been shot while the gunman had allegedly barricaded himself in a room in a headquarters building, the Washington Post and other media reported. At one point a police helicopter hovering over the complex lowered a man down by rope into the compound. Police blocked off intersections around the Navy Yard as military troops in uniform stood guard at street corners. AFP PHOTO/Paul J. Richards        (Photo credit should read PAUL J.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A hospital official says a police officer and two civilians wounded in the Washington Navy Yard shooting are doing well.

Dr. Janis Orlowski, MedStar Washington Hospital Center's chief medical officer, said Tuesday morning that the police officer, who was shot in the legs, and a woman who was shot in the shoulder are in fair condition. She says a young woman whose skull was grazed by a bullet is in good condition and asked Monday if she could go home.

Orlowski says the woman feels well and wants to start putting some of this behind her. She says the two female victims saw others who were shot and are "very worried about their co-workers" but aren't yet aware of the extent of Monday's events, which saw 13 people, including the gunman, killed.
