Hours after the mass shooting at the Navy Yard in DC, many family members are still waiting to be reunited with their loved ones.
"It's just the fact that I haven't heard anything," said 63-year-old Jacqueline Alston, a District woman who works as an usher at Nationals Park.
Alston was trying to find her common-law husband, Earnest Johnston, who works on the fourth floor of Building 197 as a custodian.
He left home at about 6 a.m. to start working at 7, she said.
Alston was home watching "The Jeffersons" when she had a feeling that she should turn on the news.
That's when she heard about the shooting. She immediately tried to call her husband but didn't get an answer.
At that point, she began to pray. At 1:30 p.m., Alston was talking to reporters outside the ballpark's Parking Garage B still waiting for her prayers to be answered.
