Officials: Sailor shoots 3 civilians at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard

At least three people were injured on Wednesday afternoon in a shooting at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, officials said.

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam tweeted on Wednesday night that the suspect has been identified as a U.S. sailor who "reportedly shot and injured three Department of Defense civilian workers before shooting themself." The base is no longer on lockdown, and the shooting is under investigation, with at least 100 witnesses being interviewed. The incident started at around 2:30 p.m., and of the three victims, two were gravely injured, Hawaii News Now reports.

The shipyard is the home port for 15 submarines and 10 destroyers, and is where the U.S. Pacific Fleet's ships are repaired and maintained. It is across the harbor from the Pearl Harbor National Memorial.
