SOUNDBITE: Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier, saying: "We are still continuing to ask our community to remain out of the area and shelter in place. We still are working diligently to either verify or clear whether we have that last additional person of interest out, whether they are going to be involved or not, that process is not complete, so this is still an active investigation, we still have a lot of law enforcement activity in the area, so please bear with us, and ask that people stay out of the area until we give the all clear."\ An official said Alexis had been discharged from the Navy Reserve in 2011 - after a series of misconduct issues.
