Update: Shooter was at business park and military base, police say.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland responded to an active shooter on Tuesday and said there are at least two victims. They said the suspect was “down.”

Police said the shooting happened at an address where a concrete business is located and about 4 miles from Fort Detrick.

Update: The U.S. Navy reported an “active shooter incident” at Fort Detrick involving sailors. The Navy did not release further details.

Jeremy Mutschler, director of marketing for Nicolock Paving Stones, said that his understanding is that the shooting was near the company’s Frederick location but not at the business itself.

“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 New York.

Citing police, The Baltimore Sun reported that both of the victims sustained life-threatening injuries in the shooting and were flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. The Sun also said the shooter is dead.

No further information was immediately available. This is a breaking news story.
