The incident involving an active shooter at a Texas naval air station was “terrorism-related,” an FBI official said on Thursday, making it the second Navy installation to experience an attack in less than six months.

The gunman who prompted Naval Air Station Corpus Christi to be locked down early Thursday morning is dead, Leah Greeves, the supervisory senior resident agent for Corpus Christi FBI, said at a press conference.

A second “potential person of interest” may still be at large in the community, she added, while urging the public to remain calm.

One sailor with the air station’s security forces sustained minor injuries during the incident, which began around 6:45 a.m. That sailor, according to Navy officials, has since been released from a local hospital.

State, local and federal law enforcement agents are still investigating the situation, which Greeves called “fluid and evolving.” She declined to provide any additional details on the shooting, citing the ongoing probe.

“But I assure you that you have an absolutely awesome brotherhood of law enforcement working together, because the safety of Corpus Christi is paramount to each of us,”
