The shooting was in the northeast of the city, about a 4-mile drive east of the US Army's Fort Detrick, according to police.

"Our emergency responders are well trained for these types of situations, and the fast response of our military police enabled us to contain this threat quickly", said Commander Dexter Nunnally of US Army Garrison Fort Detrick. Police did not identify the people involved because of the ongoing investigation, but the Navy announced Monday morning that the shooter was a Hospital Corpsman.

By early afternoon, the Nallin Farm gate at Fort Detrick through which the shooter entered remained closed and two officers were standing by.

"I heard, I don't know what they call it, but they were like air raid sirens, and I knew something was going on", Nelson said. Every time we turn on the TV we're seeing something like this happening.
