Maryland shooting leaves 2 critical, alleged shooter, Navy corpsman, dead

Two men were shot and critically wounded in a Maryland commercial park on Tuesday (April 6) in an incident that ended with the alleged gunman, identified as a Navy sailor, going to a nearby military base where he was shot dead, police said.

Authorities in Frederick, Maryland, 45 miles (72 km) northwest of Washington, were still trying to piece together the events shortly after they unfolded with an emergency call at 8:20 a.m. EDT (1220 GMT).

“I can tell you that the shooter went into a business and we know that some people fled from the business but I’m not sure at this time where exactly the shooting took place, whether it was inside or outside,” Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando told reporters on Tuesday morning.

Lando did note that there were two separate scenes.

After receiving the call, police found the two shooting victims, both men, at Riverside Tech Park, a suburban-style sprawling complex of two-story commercial businesses, Lando said.

Both were flown to the Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland Medical System in Baltimore, Lando said, adding that “at this time, the last update we have is that both of our victims are in critical condition.”

The alleged shooter then went to the nearby Fort Detrick Army base, about four miles (6 km) away, where was fatally shot by military personnel, Lando said.

The Navy said on Twitter that the unidentified shooter was a Navy hospital corpsman.
