Authorities Say Shooting at Texas Naval Base Terror Related

A security guard was shot and wounded around 6:15 a.m. local time, at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas, when the suspect sped through a gate, activating vehicle barriers which stopped the car, a defense official told ABC News.

When the car stopped the driver then got out of the car and began shooting, before being “neutralized,” the defense official said. The shooter, who has not been identified, was shot dead, but a second person of interest may be at-large, the FBI said.

“We have determined that the incident this morning at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi is terrorism related,” said FBI spokesperson Leah Graves. “They are working diligently with local, state and federal partners on the investigation, which is fluid and evolving.”

The security guard suffered minor injuries and was released from the hospital later in the day, Navy officials said.
