Authorities: Navy medic shoots 2, is shot and killed on base”

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.

"One of the victims who was wounded entered our facility looking for help and we were able to assist and call the authorities", said Mutschler, who is based in NY.

No further information was immediately available from police but a local ABC News reporter said that the suspect is "active duty US Navy".

The alleged shooter then went to the nearby Fort Detrick Army base, about four miles (6 km) away, where was fatally shot by military personnel, Lando said. 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.

The sailor made it onto the base, where Fort Detrick police shot him, according to Fort Detrick Garrison Command.

"It wasn't that long after he came through the gate" that the shooter was stopped, Hill said.

Frederick Police are investigating the incident. O'Connor noted that various defense contractors are based near Fort Detrick and it wouldn't be unusual for a member of the military to be off base and working with a private firm that does business with the US government.

"It's happening too frequently", he said. "Every time we turn on the TV we're seeing something like this happened, and now it's happening in our backyard", Lando said.
