An active shooter emergency at a Maryland Business park nearby Fort Detrick Tuesday morning left two men critically injured and the suspect, a member of the U.S. Navy, dead, officials said.

Frederick, Md. police had announced that they were "responding to an active shooter" on Progress Drive near Monocacy Boulevard. At approximately 8:20 a.m. local time, the shooter went into a business at the Riverside Tech park, about 4 miles from Fort Detrick, causing people inside to flee, Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said.

Lando said after the shooting, the suspect drove about 10 minutes to Fort Detrick, where he was killed by personnel there.

U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick announced that the suspect "breached the Nalin Pond gate located off of Opposumtown Pike," and made it onto the base, where he was fatally wounded.

The U.S. Navy confirmed on Twitter that the suspect, whom police described as a 38-year-old man, was a Navy Hospital Corpsman.

Before the emergency was cleared,authorities placed local schools on lockdown, local affiliate FOX 5 reported, and urged the public to stay away from the area of Progress Drive and Opposumtown Pike until the scene was neutralized, officials said.

"We have two different scenes," Lando later told the media. "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."

Fort Detrick is located approximately 50 minutes from Washington, D.C.

To a certain extent, one could wonder why this even national news.

Lots of details need to be released.

If memory serves me, Fort Detrick was/is the US center for both offensive and defensive chemical and biological warfare.

Was the 38 year old Navy Corpsman assigned to the base?

UPDATE:

Tommy Lamkin, a spokesman for the Naval Medical Research Center at Fort Detrick, confirmed that the shooting involved at least two Navy medical personnel.

The suspect had been stationed at Fort Detrick, base officials told ABC News.

identified him as Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet, whose rank was E-4.

A 38 year old E-4...?????

The oldest you can be to enlist in the Navy is 34 years of age.   Can't say it can't happen, but something seems wrong if in 3-4 years you can't advance further than that.
