	 		Police 2 people shot suspect ‘down’ in Maryland

Just after 9am, Frederick police tweeted: 'We are on scene responding to an active shooter in the 8400 block of Progress Drive'. The gunman shot and injured two men in or near the business, then drove toward the base, which is about 10 minutes away, Lando said.

According to the base, the armed suspect breached the Nalin Pond gate.

Both were flown to the Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland Medical System in Baltimore, Lando said, adding that "at this time, the last update we have is that both of our victims are in critical condition".

Two active U.S. Navy sailors were found suffering from gunshot wounds.

The Navy said on Twitter that the unidentified shooter was a Navy hospital corpsman. Frederick Mayor Michael O'Connor noted that various defense contractors are located near Fort Detrick and that it wouldn't be unusual for a member of the military to be off base and working with a private firm that does business with the US government. "Not even a quarter of a mile".
