Fort Detrick is the home of the US' biological defense and research programs, so this is bound to spark some conspiracy theories. Looks like two wounded and the shooter was killed.

A Navy Hospital Corpsman shot and critically wounded two people at an office park in Frederick, Maryland, on Tuesday and then went to Fort Detrick, where he was fatally shot by police there, officials say.

The 38-year-old gunman shot two men at a business in Riverside Tech Park in the 8400 block of Progress Drive, Frederick authorities said. They didn't name the business, and it wasn't clear if the shooting happened inside or outside.

Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said authorities received a call about 8:20 a.m. reporting an "active shooter" situation at Riverside Tech Park. People fled from the business, he said.

Shortly after, Lando said, authorities received information that the suspect had traveled to Fort Detrick, about a 10-minute drive away.

The suspect breached a gate, then was shot, the Fort Detrick US Army Garrisons aid. Life-saving efforts were undertaken on the suspect but failed, authorities said.
