The Kojo Nnamdi Show: Coordinating Police Response To Navy Yard Shooting

The investigation into Monday's shooting at the Washington Navy Yard continues, with many questions remaining.

Then, WAMU 88.5 reporter Elliott Francis talks about how the local community is coming together to heal hearts in the wake of tragedy.
