A northeast Wisconsin woman was just steps away from the Washington Navy Yard, when former reservist Aaron Alexis opened fire and killed a dozen people before he was shot dead.

Valynn Kuhns, a native of Oconto County, was heading to work Monday morning when she missed a bus and got to the office late -- after the shooting began. The 49-year-old Kuhns said she was literally 15 steps from entering the complex when people were running out and screaming "shooter, shooter."
