A report into the response by the U.S. Capitol Police to the Washington Navy Yard shooting has been delayed by the federal government shutdown. The report was scheduled to be completed by Monday, but officials say the government shutdown has caused a delay and the investigation is continuing.
The Capitol Police Board is reviewing the response to the Sept. 16 shooting, which left 13 dead, including the gunman, Aaron Alexis.
At the center of the investigation are reports that one of the force's tactical response teams arrived within minutes of the shootings and were told by a Capitol Police watch commander to stand down.
While no alternative deadline for the report has been announced, officials say the findings and recommendations will be "made to the Capitol Police Board in the very near future."
