Four persons are dead – including the gunman – in a mass shooting incident Friday morning at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola. Florida.
Two sheriff’s deputies were also hurt, one of who killed the gunman, who used a pistol. The base is closed until further notice.
Whether the incident was a terrorist act has not been determined.
The incident took place one day after a sailor fatally shot two persons at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial in Honolulu before killing himself.
He was identified as G. Romero, 22-year-old Navy submarine technician, according to the Associated Press.
