Two people were critically wounded in a shooting spree at an industrial park in Frederick, Maryland, on Tuesday before the suspect was fatally shot at a nearby military installation, police said.

The suspect, identified as a 38-year-old Navy medic, entered a business in the Riverside Tech Park and some people fled, but it was not immediately clear whether the shootings took place inside or outside the business, Chief Police Chief Jason Lando said.

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

“Fort Detrick police have neutralized an active shooter situation involving an armed gunman and medical lifesaving procedures were initiated,” the fort said on its Twitter feed. “The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene.”

The Navy described the shooter was a Navy hospital corpsman.

Lando, who became chief a month ago, said the victims were flown to a shock trauma center in Baltimore.
