A U.S. Navy sailor was shot and killed at a base in Virginia on Friday after he shot and wounded another sailor.

"The city of Virginia Beach Police and Fire Departments, along with Virginia Beach Emergency Medical Services responded to assist". Vincelette said the base went back to normal operations an hour later.

The base has about 10,500 active Navy personnel, 10,000 family members and 4,500 civilian personnel, according to its website.

"We do random and periodic inspections for prohibited items", he said. He says officials will investigate how the sailor got a weapon onto the base, which has a no-weapons policy, and the motive behind the shooting. The shooting remains under investigation. "I watched this situation with great concern this morning".

The station is the Navy's master jet base for fighters on the East Coast. "Thankful for our first responders as always".
