(WCMH) Chad Moses has worked as at the Washington Navy Yard for five years as a civilian contractor.

Now, he is back in Westerville, Ohio, just days after he was forced to barricade himself in his office when a gunman went on a shooting spree inside the complex.

"The first two shots actually sounded like somebody was dropping something in the atrium" said Moses, a financial management analyst. "There was two of them, and I actually walked over to the end of my row and looked, sort of looked down there but I didn't want to get too close because I didn't know what was going on. We heard two more and at that point if you've ever been to a gun range or been around guns they don't sound like they do in the movies."
