2 victims, suspect 'down' in Maryland shooting

Police did not identify the people involved because of the ongoing investigation, but the Navy announced Monday morning that the shooter was a Hospital Corpsman. Police say they've responded to an active shooter and that there are a couple of victims.

A suspect allegedly shot two men in Frederick, Maryland, and was killed while breaching a local U.S. Army fort on Monday.

Fort Detrick is a U.S. Army base in Frederick that is home to the military's flagship biological defense laboratory and several federal civilian biodefense labs.

After receiving the call, police found the two shooting victims, both men, at Riverside Tech Park, a suburban-style sprawling complex of two-story commercial businesses, Lando said. The victims were flown by helicopter to Baltimore and are in critical condition, Lando said.

Police in Maryland responded to an active shooter on Tuesday and said there are at least two victims.

After the shooting, the medic drove about 10 minutes to Fort Detrick, where he was shot by base personnel, Lando said at a news conference. Fort Detrick officials later confirmed that the man who was killed on base was the same person who shot the two people at the business park. The public is no longer at risk. The Navy did not release further details.

Special agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with a K-9 team are being sent to the scene, the agency said.
