WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Washington Navy Yard still remains an active crime scene, according to Naval District Washington (NDW).

The Washington Navy Yard will be open only for 'mission essential personnel' on Tuesday, officials said on the NDW Facebook page.

They also advised the following:

  • Mission Essential Personnel is determined by the Command. Offsite office and Telework is highly encouraged.

  • Only the 9th Street Gate will be open for pedestrian traffic. All other gates are secured for law enforcement operations.

  • No vehicles, private or commercial, will be allowed onto the Washington Navy Yard until further notice.

  • Federal Law Enforcement Agencies will determine when privately owned vehicles will be allowed to depart the Washington Navy Yard. People should plan on at least 48 hours, potentially 19 September, that they will not be able to drive their vehicle. Access to collect personal items may potentially be arranged for parking garages 386 and 405 on Wednesday, 18 September. Those in Parking Garage 28 and the surrounding area must consider a potentially longer duration. If Federal Law Enforcement Agencies allow privately owned vehicle departure sooner, immediate notification will be released by all available means.
