3 Navy yard shooting victims undergo surgery


WASHINGTON — A man “in his 60s” died on the way to a George Washington University Hospital after he was shot Monday morning at the Washington Navy Yard, a doctor said.

Three other shooting victims who were flown to MedStar Washington Hospital Center are expected to survive, hospital Chief Medical Officer Janis Orlowski told reporters at a news conference about three hours after the attack began about 8:20 a.m. Monday.

There were “individuals at the scene who will not be transported because they are deceased,” Orlowski said.
