Navy sailor kills two people before committing suicide

Two Department of Defense employees shot and killed by joint base active shooter

HONOLULU (INTELLIHUB) — U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Robert Chadwick told reporters at a press briefing on Wednesday that joint base security personnel responded to an active shooter call after a Navy sailor opened-fire on three people in the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard striking three people before the sailor reportedly turned the gun on himself in a cowardly act of suicide.

Two of the victims are deceased along with the shooter.

The victims were all male Department of Defense employees.

The shooter was stationed on the USS Columbia (SSN 771), a submarine that had been undergoing routine maintenance and repairs in drydock.
