The suspect began shooting in a classroom building early Friday morning, killing four. The shooter was then killed by responding officers. Seven people were injured, including the officers. 

The shooter was a Saudi national in the U.S. for flight training, two law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation told ABC News. Investigators are trying to determine whether the shooting was terror-related or not, the officials said. (ABC News)

“This is a tragic day for the city of Pensacola… we are a military town, our hearts and prayers are connected to all those that serve us every single day,” the city’s mayor, Grover Robinson, said during a press conference. “We will overcome this, but today this is certainly a tragic day.”

Friday's shooting is the second on a Naval base this week. On Wednesday, an active duty sailor at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard opened fire on civilian employees, killing two, before turning the gun on himself.
