(Washington, DC) -- A review by the U.S. Capitol Police says initial reports of their officers' response to the deadly shootings at the Washington Navy Yard were "inaccurate." The document says based on the available information on the morning of September 16th, there was "uncertainty about threats to the U.S. Capitol," leading to a recall of Capitol police officers "over 30 minutes after the first reports of the attack." The review says the first reports of the recall of the officers "failed to convey the nuanced complexity" of the situation. Aaron Alexis shot and killed 12 people at the Navy Yard before he was killed by police.
