A man shot and wounded two people at a business in Frederick, Maryland on Tuesday and then drove to Fort Detrick where he was shot and killed by personnel at the Army base.
A U.S. Navy spokesperson said in a statement that there was “an active shooter incident at Fort Detrick, Maryland involving U.S. Navy sailors.”
Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said they received a call at 8:20AM of an “active shooter” at the Riverside Tech Park in the 8400 block of Progress Drive. The suspect, identified as a 38-year-old man, shot two men at a business at the location and fled the scene. Police then received information the suspect arrived at Fort Detrick, approximately a 10-minute drive away, where the suspect was shot and killed by personnel at the gate.
The two male victims at the first scene were flown to Baltimore for treatment and are said to be in critical condition. There are no reports of any other injuries.
This is a developing story.
