Source: USNI

The FBI is investigating a Thursday incident at a Texas naval air station, after a Navy security team there killed an “Arab male” in a gun battle gate at the base, a U.S. official told USNI News.

The official did not have any additional details on the identity of the shooter beyond apparent ethnicity. An FBI spokeswoman did not provide additional details when contacted by USNI News.

Navy Security Forces responded to an active shooter at NAS Corpus Christi at about 7:15 a.m. EST resulting in the injury to the NSF sailor. The shooter was killed by the NSF team, the official told USNI News.

“One sailor attached to NAS Corpus Christi Navy Security Forces sustained minor injuries and was released from a local hospital,” the Navy said on Thursday afternoon.
“The installation has reopened with traffic flowing through the South Gate. The North Gate remains closed.”

3. FBI says it's terror related now.

A shooting that injured one security guard at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas on Thursday has been determined to be terrorism-related, FBI officials said.

The shooter, who has not been identified, was shot dead, but a second person of interest may be at-large, the FBI said.

"The public should remain calm, and if you see something, say something," FBI officials said.
