A base spokeswoman says two people were killed in a shooting at Naval Station Norfolk late last night. One of the dead, a suspect, was shot by Naval security forces, according to a Twitter announcement from the station.
According to the statement, the shooting took place on board the USS Mahan, a destroyer.
A base spokeswoman said the shooting happened around 11:20 p.m. Monday. She would not describe the circumstances but said the scene is secure and no one is being sought by authorities.
The base was briefly put on lockdown after the shooting but that has since been lifted.
