Rep. Steven Horsford's aide witnesses Navy Yard shooting aftermath

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Don Andres, a legislative aide to Nevada Rep. Steven Horsford, described the scene as he left his Washington, DC, apartment building Monday morning, located just a parking lot away from the Navy Yard complex.

"You know first reaction, is this a terrorist attack, is this something bigger, we don't know … go downstairs and see a ton of what looks like civilian workers from the Navy Yard who were evacuated toward my building," said Andres.

That's when he learned about the shooting spree which happened feet from where he lived.

"On Water Street I see what looks like police boats in the water around the Anacostia River," Andres said.

Andres took two pictures of a man injured on the ground, although he isn't sure if that man was actually hit by the gunfire.

"I don't know if it was a heart attack or just related to just the panic and pandemonium, but it definitely strikes a note of fear," Andres said.

Shortly after that, Andres said emergency crews arrived to help the injured man.

While he's never been on that Navy base himself, Andres said it always seemed like a well protected facility.

"I jogged past them a couple of times on the river front and you know you can't get in without secure code or some kind of badge you have to wave at a little pad," Andres told FOX5.
