Navy Yard shooting survivor: Gunman was “100 feet away”

Denise Robinson spoke out about surviving the Navy Yard shooting with the gunman “100 feet away,” during a “scary event” that lasted for “an hour and a half.” Her niece, China Campbell, told her experience frantically trying to get in touch with Denise during the ordeal.

“It started out as a typical day, you know, talking with co-workers and about 8:20 we hear pop, pop sounds…. We really didn’t know what was going on,” Robinson said. “So we stood up just to see and hear, and couldn’t really determine what was happening. So when my supervisor came to her door, we both made eye contact and just beside her door was the gunman.”
