A gunman, who Navy Public Affairs confirmed was a Navy Hospital Corpsman, in Frederick, Maryland, shot two people before being killed, local police reported.

“We are on scene responding to an active shooter in the 8400 block of Progress Drive. Currently there are two victims and one suspect is down,” Frederick Police said via the social network Twitter.

When police officers arrived at site they found two adult males injured. The victims were flown by helicopter to Baltimore and are in critical condition, Lando said.

The 38-year-old suspect, who Navy Public Affairs confirmed was a Navy Hospital Corpsman, then traveled to nearby Fort Detrick and was subsequently shot and killed by base personnel, police said.

“Our number one priority is the safety of our people,” said U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick Commander Col. Dexter Nunnally.

“Our emergency responders are well trained for these types of situations and the fast response of our military police enabled us to contain this threat quickly.”

Navy Public Affairs also issued a statement confirming “there was an active shooter incident at Fort Detrick, MD involving U.S. Navy Sailors. We will continue to update with additional details as the situation evolves.”

The police chief said it is a “very active scene” and did not want to comment on motive.

“The public is no longer at risk, everyone is safe. No officers were injured, and there were no other injuries to bystanders,” Lando said.

Fort Detrick and Frederick police are investigating the incident.
