The Navy Yard shooting: One year later

A look back at the events surrounding the Navy Yard shooting and remembering the victims one year later.

WASHINGTON -- It was one year ago Tuesday that terror struck at Washington Navy Yard.

On Sept. 16, 2013, a lone gunman -- Aaron Alexis -- entered Building 197 of the Navy Yard in and opened fire.

Roughly an hour later, Alexis had been shot and killed by police, but not before he'd claimed the lives of a dozen people.

On Tuesday, several ceremonies will mark the day and remember those who lost their lives. 

Stay with for the latest events throughout the day.
