Didn't an active shooter episode happen a few years ago there? More than one shooter. They all turned out to be illegal aliens.

There was a navy ship yard shooting in 2013, but I believe that was in Washington. Can't remember another one in Hawaii, but perhaps I just missed it.

2 dead, 1 injured after US sailor opens fire at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard before killing self, officials say
A shooter identified as a U.S. sailor opened fired at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard late Wednesday, leaving two victims dead and one injured before killing himself, officials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam said.

PEARL HARBOR - A shooter identified as a U.S. sailor opened fired at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard late Wednesday, leaving two victims dead and one injured before killing himself, officials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam said.

In a media release, base officials said three Department of Defense civilian workers were shot and injured in the shooting that began around 2:30 p.m. Two of those victims later died.

“Officials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam report the shooting incident at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard has been secured,” said a media release from the base.

The incident took place at the vicinity of the shipyard’s Dry Dock 2, the release said, adding that the base is no longer in lockdown and that base security officials along with Navy investigators were investigating.

"Officials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam report the shooting incident at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard has been secured. One person is confirmed dead. The shooter has been identified as a U.S. Sailor. #PearlHarbor," the base tweeted.

The military didn't release a motive or any identifying information about the sailor who opened fire.

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam officials said the names of the victims would not be released until notification of next of kin.

Queen's Medical Center spokesman Cedric Yamanaka said the hospital was treating one patient but didn't give details on their condition.

Honolulu Emergency Medical Service spokeswoman Shayne Enright said they treated and transported patients but wouldn't provide more details.

Earlier, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam spokesman Charles Anthony confirmed that there was an active shooting at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.

“JBPHH security forces have responded to a reported shooting at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The incident occurred at approximately 2:30 p.m. Due to the ongoing security incident, access/gates to #JBPHH are closed. We will update when we have further information,“ the JBPHH tweeted.

The base’s 15th Wing also previously confirmed that there was an active shooter.

“ALERT: There is an active shooter on base, please seek a secure location until further notice,” the 15th Wing wrote on Facebook.

Honolulu Fire Department Capt. Scot Seguirant said firefighters were responding to the base.

Pearl Harbor is one of the U.S. Navy's major installations.

The shipyard is across the harbor from the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, which on Saturday will mark the 78th anniversary of the attack by Japan that propelled the U.S. into World War II. More than 2,300 Americans died in the attack on Dec. 7, 1941.

Pearl Harbor houses the headquarters for the U.S. Pacific Fleet and is the home port for 10 destroyers and 15 submarines. The shipyard repairs, maintains and modernizes the ships and submarines of the fleet.

Hawaii Gov. David Ige on Wednesday said the White House has offered assistance from federal agencies and that the state is also ready to help if needed.

“I join in solidarity with the people of Hawaii as we express our heartbreak over this tragedy and concern for those affected by the shooting,” Ige said in a statement.

The base said the Emergency Family Assistance Center is now open and will remain open until further notice.

The Associated Press contributed to this report. This story was reported from Los Angeles.

Sailor Who Killed 2 and Himself at Pearl Harbor Identified

HONOLULU -- A Navy sailor shot three civilians, killing two of them, before taking his own life at Pearl Harbor just days before thousands were scheduled to gather at the storied military base to mark the 78th anniversary of the Japanese bombing that launched the U.S. into World War II.

Rear Adm. Robert Chadwick, commander of Navy Region Hawaii, said the service will evaluate whether security should be upgraded before the annual ceremony. About a dozen survivors of the 1941 bombing are expected to attend, along with dignitaries and service members.

The shooter was identified Thursday as 22-year-old G. Romero, according to a military official who spoke on condition of anonymity to provide details that had not been made public.

Chadwick said he didn't know the motive behind Wednesday's shooting at the naval shipyard within the base. The third victim was hospitalized.

It isn't known whether the sailor and the three male civilians had any type of relationship, or what the motive was for the shooting, Chadwick said.

"We have no indication yet whether they were targeted or if it was a random shooting," Chadwick said.

The sailor was assigned to the fast attack submarine USS Columbia, which is at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for maintenance.

He was identified as a 22-year-old enlisted sailor, according to a military official speaking on condition of anonymity to provide details that hadn't been made public

It wasn't immediately known what type of weapon was used or how many shots were fired. Chadwick said that was part of the investigation. Personal weapons are not allowed on base.

Names of the victims will not be released until next of kin have been notified.

"Our thoughts are with the families of the victims and everyone involved. I can say that we are mobilizing support services for naval shipyard personnel as well as everyone else who may be affected by this tragic event," Chadwick said.

The base went into lockdown at about 2:30 p.m. when the first active shooter reports were received. The base reopened a few hours later. Witnesses were still being interviewed hours after the shooting.

The shipyard repairs, maintains and modernizes the ships and submarines of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, which is headquartered at Pearl Harbor. The base is the home port for 10 destroyers and 15 submarines. It also hosts Air Force units.

Hawaii Gov. David Ige said the White House has offered assistance from federal agencies and that the state is also ready to help if needed.

"I join in solidarity with the people of Hawaii as we express our heartbreak over this tragedy and concern for those affected by the shooting," Ige said in a statement.

Mass shootings and gun violence are rare in Hawaii. In 1999, a Xerox service technician fatally shot seven co-workers. In 2006, a man fatally shot his taxi driver and a couple taking photos of the city lights from a lookout point in the hills above Honolulu.

Hawaii had the lowest gun death rate among the states in 2017, according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The islands have strict firearms laws, including a ban on assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines.

The shipyard is across the harbor from the wreckage of USS Arizona, which sank in the Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese attack. It's also across from the visitors center, which will host Saturday's ceremony. More than 2,300 Americans were killed in the bombing.

The shipyard has played a key role in naval history, most notably during World War II. Shipyard workers were given just days to repair the USS Yorktown, an aircraft carrier severely damaged during the Battle of the Coral Seat in 1942, because the Navy needed to quickly send the ship to Midway to meet Japanese forces there.

Some 1,400 shipyard workers labored around the clock for almost 72 hours to patch the carrier together. The planes the Yorktown delivered to Midway sank one of the four aircraft carriers Japan sent to the battle and helped destroy two others. The Battle of Midway turned the tide of the war in the United States' favor.

And now another one:

2 dead including suspect in shooting at Pensacola, Florida, naval base, police say: Live updates

https://abcnews.go.com/US/active-shooter-naval-base-pensacola/story?id=67542409

Two people are dead including the suspect after an active shooting incident at a naval base in Pensacola, Florida, police said.

Authorities responded to reports of a shooting at naval base NAS Pensacola on Friday morning, officials said. ATF and FBI also responded to the scene.

There are "an unknown number of injured" that have been taken to a hospital," Lt. Cmdr. Megan Isaac, a Navy spokesperson, told ABC News.

Nine patients were admitted to Baptist Hospital in Pensacola but their conditions are unknown at this time, a hospital spokesperson said.

An unknown number of injured were taken to the trauma center at Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital.

This is the second shooting incident on a Navy base in the last week.

A 22-year-old active-duty sailor opened fire on three civilian employees, killing two, before he fatally shot himself at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard near Honolulu on Wednesday, military officials said.

The suspected shooter opened fire on shipyard personnel with his M4 service rifle and then used his M9 service pistol to shoot himself, officials said.
