Three people were injured, two gravely, in an active shooter situation Wednesday afternoon at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The gunman, who was tentatively identified as an active duty member serving aboard the USS Columbia, died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Rear Admiral Robb Chadwick informed reporters.
Neither the shooter nor the victims were identified pending notification of family, he added.
“Obviously, our thoughts are with the families and with everyone involved,” Chadwick stated.
Authorities did not release a possible motive, stating the investigation remains ongoing.
“We have no indication yet whether they were targeted or if it was a random shooting,” Chadwick stated.
(UPDATE 9:42 PM EDT): Local ABC affiliate KITV says the shooter has died, and three other people are injured. A source tells the channel that the shooter was an active military on-duty guard and the victims are civilians. Details soon.
