Frederick, Maryland, active marksman, Fort Detrick

Two people were seriously injured in a shooting at an industrial park in Frederick, Md. On Tuesday before the suspect was fatally shot at a nearby military facility, police said.

The suspect, identified as a 38-year-old Navy Hospital Corps member, walked into a Riverside Tech Park business and some people fled, but it was not immediately clear whether the shooting had taken place inside or outside the company, Police Chief Jason Lando told me.

The suspect then proceeded to Fort Detrick, about four miles from the scene, Lando said.

“Fort Detrick Police neutralized an active shooting situation involving an armed shooter and medical rescue procedures were initiated,” the fort said on his Twitter feed. “The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene.”

The Navy described the gunman as a member of the Navy Hospital Corps.

Lando said the victims were airlifted to a trauma center in Baltimore.
