Two men were shot and critically wounded in a Maryland commercial park on Tuesday 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.

Police first got the call around 8:20 a.m. for shots fired inside a Navy office at the Riverside Tech Park on Progress Drive.

"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 NY. He added that it was not clear yet who killed the suspect.

Centre closes vaccine registration for healthcare, frontline workers
India reported 81,466 new COVID-19 cases and 469 coronavirus-related deaths in the last 24 hours, the ministry said. Panigrahi informed that 33,04,732 people had received the jab in Odisha and the target is to vaccinate 1.16 crore.

Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said officers found two men with gunshot wounds.

The Navy will continue to provide updates on the situation as more details come in, the U.S. Navy spokesperson told NBC News.

The Navy said on Twitter that the unidentified shooter was a Navy hospital corpsman. Talley said he made it about a half-mile into the installation before he was stopped at a parking lot. Fort Detrick police confronted him. About 10,000 military personnel and civilians work on the base, which encompasses about 1,300 acres (526 hectares) in the city of Frederick. O'Connor noted that various defense contractors are based near Fort Detrick and it wouldn't be unusual for a member of the military to be off base and working with a private firm that does business with the USA government. The victims were taken to Baltimore Shock Trauma, where they were listed in "critical condition", Lando said.
