Scott, Rubio, DeSantis Visit Pensacola; Call For Tougher Vetting Of International Trainees”

A Twitter user appearing to match Alshamrani's identity had also made a series of anti-US posts before the shooting, an online monitoring group says.

Rojas stated that Alshamrani's associates are now cooperating with the FBI's investigation, and said that she would remain tight-lipped in order to "control misinformation".

"Foreign military officers, particularly those under training, are accounted for under a similar standard to US personnel under a training environment", said the official, who worked with foreign trainees.

Earlier in the week of the shooting, Alshamrani hosted a dinner party where he and three others watched videos of mass shootings, another us official told the AP on Saturday.

Mohammed al-Shamrani opened fire inside a classroom at Naval Air Station Pensacola.

Several others were wounded, including two sheriff's deputies and a Navy police officer, Escambia County Chief Deputy Chip Simmons said at a prayer vigil in Pensacola Saturday. However, the agency has not yet confirmed the killer's motivations, or whether he was a member of a network.

He opened fire in a classroom at the us military base on Friday morning using a 9 mm Glock 45 handgun he had obtained legally in the United States before he was shot dead by authorities. "We now assess there was one gunman who perpetrated this attack; and no arrests have been made in this case".

Currently, more than 5,000 foreign nationals are at bases nationwide training alongside us troops, including more than 850 Saudi nationals, according to CNN.

The Pensacola base hosts around 200 foreign military trainees, the Times said, adding that Alshamrani was undergoing flight training while at the base.

It was founded in 1985 exclusively for Saudi students, but later it also started training military students from other countries. Both deputies were expected to survive.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Robert O'Brien, said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that the shooting looked like "terrorism or akin to terrorism".

Booker decried Trump's stance toward the Saudis as "transactional", calling for a broad review of U.S. -Saudi relations. More than 850 Saudis are in the USA for training activities.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said he has ordered a review of vetting procedures while defending the training program that brought Mohammed Alshamrani to Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida.

"This has been done for many decades", the president said.

"I want to immediately make sure we're taking all necessary precautions appropriate to the particular base to make sure our people are safe and secure, ' he said".

21-year-old Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force, was receiving training at the naval base as reported in a press release by Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, Rachel L. Rojas. The National Naval Aviation Museum and Barrancas National Cemetery are closed until further notice.

The navy identified the three men who died and hailed them as heroes for trying to stop the gunman and flagging down first responders after being shot.

"We now assess there was one gunman who perpetrated this attack and no arrests have been made in this case", Rojas said on Sunday.

"Joshua Kaleb Watson saved countless lives today with his own", Watson's brother, Adam Watson, wrote on Facebook on Friday. One of those people had recorded the shooting from outside the classroom building.
