The shooting occurred at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia. Col. David Maxwell, the base commander, tells the press that local and military police responded to a report of a gunshot at a barracks around 10:30 PM Thursday night. When they arrived, they found a man dead in the barracks. They later found a second victim dead, along with the body of the shooter.

Maxwell said the gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He also denied early reports that a standoff had taken place at the barracks.

Marine Corps Base Quantico is located 37 miles south of Washington D.C. and also serves as the FBI’s training academy.
