A shooter who opened fire Friday morning at Naval Air Station Pensacola, injuring multiple people and killing at least one, has died, authorities said.

At least one other person was killed in the shooting and an unknown number of victims were transported to hospitals, said Lt. Cmdr. Megan Isaac, a Navy spokeswoman. It was unclear if the victim killed was a service member or civilian, she said.

The shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola was reported at about 6:45 a.m., and the base was placed on lockdown, the Navy said.

Two hours later, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office announced that “there is no longer an active shooter on NAS Pensacola. The shooter is confirmed dead.”

Little other information was immediately available about the incident at the military facility in Florida.

The installation, which hosts 16,000 military personnel and more than 7,000 civilians, is known as the “cradle of Naval aviation.” It’s home to the Navy’s Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron and is the first stop for training to become Naval pilots or flight officers.
