Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, one of the Navy’s major installations, said the shooting began around 2:30 p.m. at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The military didn’t release a motive or any identifying information about the sailor who opened fire.
Two hospitals said they were each treating a victim but didn’t have details on their conditions.
The base has reopened following a lockdown.
Hawaii News Now interviewed a witness who says he was at his desk when he heard pops that he recognized to be gunshots. The witness said when he looked out the window he saw three people on the ground.
