Two people are in critical condition after a shooting near Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, on Tuesday morning.

Police in Maryland responded to an active shooter on Tuesday and said there are at least two victims.

A man shot and injured two people at a business in the Maryland city of Frederick on Tuesday morning before driving to the United States military's nearby Fort Detrick, where personnel there shot and killed him, police said.

Lando said police would have a further update on Tuesday afternoon.

After receiving the call, police found the two shooting victims, both men, at Riverside Tech Park, a suburban-style sprawling complex of two-story commercial businesses, Lando said.

Lando said shortly after, authorities learned the suspect had traveled to U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick, about a 10-minute drive away, where the suspect was shot.

"The gunman was neutralized, and medical lifesaving procedures were initiated", they said.

The Frederick County Sheriff's Office (FCSO) indicates a suspect is "down" following an active shooter situation near Fort Detrick, Maryland.

Just after 9am, Frederick police tweeted: 'We are on scene responding to an active shooter in the 8400 block of Progress Drive'.

After the shooting, a victim entered a nearby business, Nicolock Paving Stones, and asked for help, a person there said. All I can tell you is that we have confirmed there is only one shooter.
