VIRGINIA: At least three men have been killed in a shooting in Quantico Marine Base in Virginia, including the gunman who died of self-inflicted wounds.
Earlier there were reports of a lockdown when the shooter was surrounded by Prince William County police and military police.
The motives behind the attack remain unclear.
A message posted on the base’s Facebook page shortly after the shooting warned all residents to stay in their homes until the suspect is apprehended. “Base residents are to follow all instructions being delivered by the Giant Voice System. Please remain inside your homes with your doors locked,” read the post.
The base is in the Virginia suburbs near Washington, D.C.
