US Navy sailor fatally shoots two civilians before killing himself in Pearl Harbor Foundation, Hawaii

“We’ve confirmed both (sufferers ) are dead. One can be in stable condition at a local hospital. I will also report that the shooter, who has been recognized as an active-duty sailor assigned to USS Columbia SSN 771, can be dead through an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Rear Admiral Robert Chadwick explained.

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam stated earlier on Twitter the three victims were civilians working for the US Department of Defense.

“I join in solidarity with all the people of Hawaii because we say our heartbreak on this catastrophe and concern for all those affected by the shooting,” Governor David Ige mentioned on Twitter.

“The president was briefed about the shooting Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam at Hawaii and continues to monitor the circumstance,” a White House spokesman said.

The foundation, which was formed from the merger of Pearl Harbor Naval Station and Hickam Air Force Base, was put on lockdown for approximately two hours after the incident at approximately 2:30 p.m. Hawaii period.

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is a joint U.S. Air Force and Navy Setup situated 13 kilometers from Honolulu.
