Fort Detrick police kill sailor who wounded two in off-base shooting

A sheriff's deputy from Frederick County Md. puts paper bags with evidence into a police vehicle near the scene of a shooting at a business park in Frederick Md. Tuesday April 6

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. Lando said the man who was killed on base was the same person who shot the two people at the business park.

A Washington television station reports the two victims from the office park were flown to the Shock Trauma treatment center in Baltimore, Maryland, about 80 kilometers away, where officials say they remain in critical condition.

With two active crime scenes, police have asked for more time before releasing details. 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. Frederick Mayor Michael O'Connor noted that various defense contractors are located near Fort Detrick and that it wouldn't be unusual for a member of the military to be off base and working with a private firm that does business with the USA government. Talley said he made it about a half-mile into the installation before he was stopped at a parking lot.

Former Jordanian Crown Prince 'under house arrest'
On Saturday, authorities in Jordan announced their decision to arrest 20 people, including high-profile officials. The army said it had cautioned Hamzah against damaging the country's security, but denied he had been arrested.

"When these incidents happen in other places, you're always grateful that it's not your community", O'Connor added. O'Connor noted that various defense contractors are based near Fort Detrick and it wouldn't be unusual for a member of the military to be off base and working with a private firm that does business with the USA government.

Lando said police would have a further update on Tuesday afternoon. The names and ages of the victims and the suspect were not immediately disclosed, the spokesman said.

"It's very tragic. It's happening too frequently".
