NEWPORT,RI- In Newport the navy base has not had to increase any security but they train and prepare for situations like the shooting in DC.

Security has a strict policy on who gets in. In the event of an active shooter they have a plan that they practice on a regular basis.

It's been business as usual today, as many are still trying to stay up to date with the active scene in Washington, D.C.

Navy officials say this base has not change operations today nor have they added extra security.

People are just shocked and saddened by the shooting.

"It's awful when someone can go in there and shoot a place up and kill people and wound people, and it's just awful. It's an awful thing to happen and I feel bad for them. It's like Boston all over again," said Linda Candela.
