  • Sheriff’s department says shooter ‘confirmed dead’ after active shooter at NAS Pensacola

Escambia County Commissioner Jeff Bergosh, who works at the Naval Air Station as a civilian contractor, told the Pensacola News Journal he was in line to go through the gate on Friday morning when it was shut down due to the active shooter report.

Ron DeSantis (R) said Friday that Saudi Arabia will "owe a debt" to victims of a deadly shooting at a Naval Air Station in Pensacola following confirmation that the suspected gunman was a Saudi national.

The shooter was killed by sheriff deputies, according to Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan.

The delegation came under a Navy program that offers training to USA allies, known as the Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity. One of the responding deputies eventually killed the attacker, who used a handgun.

Five people have been taken to Baptist Health Care in Pensacola, said hospital spokeswoman Kathy Bowers.

Officials have identified the shooter as a Saudi Arabian aviation student.

President Donald Trump said in a tweet that he had received a briefing on the incident and spoken with the governor.

While mass shootings in the United States are common, those at military facilities are rare. The deputies were injured during the exchange with the suspect but are expected to survive.

NAS Pensacola employs more than 16,000 military and 7,400 civilian personnel, according to its website. He said the king told him that "the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people".

Commanding officer Timothy Kinsella said the shooter - whose name authorities declined to release - was an aviation trainee, one of "a couple hundred" foreign students present at the base.

The lockdown in Pensacola comes just a few days after a sailor killed two civilian employees before turning a gun on himself at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii.
