Thursday’s shooting at a naval base in Corpus Christi, Texas has been deemed “terror related” by the FBI. The base is located just over 200 miles from Houston, Texas, along the Gulf of Mexico. Described as an “Arab male,” according to the Associated Press, Corpus Christi resident Adam Alsahli was identified as the gunman. Alsahli was later killed after a stand-off with law enforcement officials. Texas authorities said that the gunman attempted to drive his vehicle through the base’s gates, only to be stopped by a security official; he shot a female security officer, in an attempt to enter the base. 

The investigation is still underway, as law enforcement officials look for more suspects.
