Senate Recesses Due to Navy Yard Shooting

Obama still scheduled to host Musica Latina event at White House

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate will recess until Tuesday in response to the deadly shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.

Moments after the Senate returned to work on Monday, Majority Leader Harry Reid announced that two scheduled votes on nominations would be delayed until Tuesday.

The Senate chaplain, the Rev. Barry Black, has offered a prayer for the victims and their families. Reid and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell spoke about the events and expressed their appreciation for the U.S. Capitol Police.

President Obama, who called the shooting a “cowardly act,” is still scheduled to host Musica Latina, a White House concert in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, later tonight with First Lady Michelle Obama.
