Two people were injured and a suspect was shot and killed during an “active shooter” incident in Maryland, officials said Tuesday.
“We are on scene responding to an active shooter in the 8400 block of Progress Drive. Currently, there are two victims and one suspect is down,” Frederick Police wrote.
The U.S. Navy reported the active shooter incident at Fort Detrick.
Authorities said the shooting took place in the 8400 block of Progress Drive, which is approximately 4 miles from Fort Detrick.
More details about the incident weren’t immediately provided.
“We have two different scenes. All I can tell you is that we have confirmed there is only one shooter. The public is no longer at risk. Everyone is safe,” Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said, reported The Associated Press.
Jeremy Mutschler, director of marketing for Nicolock Paving Stones, told The Associated Press that his understanding is that the shooting was near the company’s Frederick location but not at the business itself.
“One of the victims who was wounded entered our facility looking for help and we were able to assist and call the authorities,” said Mutschler, who is based in New York.
