An active shooter situation at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard has left at least three victims injured, including two critically.
A spokesman said the situation has been “contained," and a witness said he saw the gunman fatally shoot himself. Sources tell Hawaii News Now that several civilians are among the gunshot victims.
First responders were called about 2:30 p.m. Hawaiian Time (3 hrs behind Pacific Time) to the base, which remains on lockdown. Base personnel also received text messages alerting them of the situation. Eyewitnesses tell local Hawaii News Now that the shooting happened at Drydock 2.
One witness said he was at his desk when he heard loud pops.
“I kind of recognize that as gunshots,” the witness. “I looked out in time to see the shooter, who I assume was a sailor because he was in uniform ... shoot himself.”
