Authorities in Frederick, Md., said they are investigating a shooting incident with at least two victims.

Officials responded about 8:20 a.m.to the initial shooting scene at Riverside Technical Park in Frederick, about 52 miles northwest of Washington, police said Tuesday.

Talley said investigators are looking at whether the shooter knew the victims, but refused to speculate, saying, "We don't want to compromise any aspect of the investigation". He added that it was not clear yet who killed the suspect.

With two active crime scenes, police have asked for more time before releasing details.

"Our emergency responders are well trained for these types of situations, and the fast response of our military police enabled us to contain this threat quickly", said Commander Dexter Nunnally of US Army Garrison Fort Detrick.

The Navy said on Twitter that the unidentified shooter was a Navy hospital corpsman.

The FBI's Baltimore Field Office was assisting the Maryland State Police and Frederick County Police in the investigation. About 10,000 military personnel and civilians work on the base, which encompasses about 1,300 acres (526 hectares) in the city of Frederick. "But you always know, perhaps in the back of your mind, that that's just luck - that there isn't any reason why it couldn't happen here".

Lando said police would have a further update on Tuesday afternoon.

"It's happening too frequently", he said.
