Russian Official Mocks ‘American Exceptionalism’ in Comment on Washington Navy Yard Shooting

“A new shootout at Navy headquarters in Washington – a lone gunman and 7 corpses. Nobody’s even surprised anymore,” tweeted Russian parliamentary foreign affairs committee member Alexey Pushkov. “A clear confirmation of American exceptionalism.’”

The suspect or suspects in the shooting remain at large. Conflicting reports suggest that four people have been killed with eight more wounded in the mass shooting which began shortly after 8 a.m. ET.
