The shooter then drove to U.S. Army Fort Detrick ten minutes away, Lando said. Police did not identify the people involved because of the ongoing investigation, but the Navy announced Monday morning that the shooter was a Hospital Corpsman. Talley said he made it about a half-mile into the installation before he was stopped at a parking lot. About 10,000 military personnel and civilians work on the base, which encompasses about 1,300 acres (526 hectares) in the city of Frederick.

By early afternoon, the Nallin Farm gate at Fort Detrick through which the shooter entered remained closed and two officers were standing by. The chief said life-saving efforts were undertaken on the suspect but failed.
