According to ABC2 News, Donna Richardson of Bel Air began working at the Navy Yard last week. After shots were fired in the building, Richardson and her coworkers first hid in the Navy Yard's museum under armed guard, ABC2 News said. She spent the rest of the day trying to find her family.
Richardson told ABC2 News that she was ushered to the Washington Nationals stadium, a few blocks from the Navy Yard, and she waited to be reunited with her family. Richardson said workers are prohibited from having cell phones in the Navy Yard buildings, so she had a hard time reaching her family.
Monday’s shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC killed 13 people including the gunman, and left 14 people wounded, according to Washington Mayor Vincent Gray.
