Two sailors were wounded in a shooting spree at an industrial park in Frederick, Maryland, on Tuesday before the suspect was fatally shot at a nearby military installation, authorities said.

The suspect, identified as 38-year-old Navy medic Phantahun Girma Woldesenbet, entered a naval-related business in the Riverside Tech Park and, armed with a rifle, opened fire, officials said. Two sailors were injured. One is in critical condition and the other is expected to be released from the hospital Wednesday. 

Woldesenbet, a petty officer third class, then drove about four miles to Fort Detrick, where he was stationed, Frederick Chief Police Chief Jason Lando said. 

He was stopped at a security access checkpoint at the base. Before his vehicle was searched, Woldesenbet sped through the gate and was followed by the installation’s police force, Brigadier General Michael Talley said.
