2 victims, suspect 'down' in Maryland 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

Authorities in Frederick, Md., said they are investigating a shooting incident with at least two victims.

Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet, a petty officer third class assigned to Fort Detrick, began shooting with a rifle inside a Navy-related business at the Riverside Tech Park, causing people inside to flee, Frederick police and Fort Detrick officials said at a news conference.

"One of the victims who was wounded entered our facility looking for help and we were able to assist and call the authorities", said Mutschler, who is based in NY. "Everyone is safe", Lando said.


"The US Navy can confirm there was an active shooter incident at Fort Detrick, Maryland, involving US Navy sailors".

Police confronted the suspect at Fort Detrick, a military base located nearby, according to local affiliate FOX 5 in Washington, D.C. Additional details were not immediately available. 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.

"It wasn't that long after he came through the gate" that the shooter was stopped, Hill said. "There's no further threat to the Frederick city and Frederick County residents". "But you always know, perhaps in the back of your mind, that that's just luck - that there isn't any reason why it couldn't happen here". The chief said life-saving efforts were undertaken on the suspect but failed. Every time we turn on the TV we're seeing something like this happening.
