BREAKING: FBI Says Shooting at Air Station in Texas Was “Terrorism Related”

The FBI says a shooting at the Naval Air Station at Corpus Christi was terrorism-related.


NBCDFW reports a gunman opened fire at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi on Thursday, wounding at least one security force member in a “terrorism-related” attack, authorities said.

Several law enforcement officials identify the gunman in today’s Corpus Christi naval base shooting as Adam Alsahli of Corpus Christi.

The coastal base in Nueces County, Texas, about 140 miles southeast of San Antonio, was on lockdown after security responded to an active shooter around 6:15 a.m.

The injured security force member is in good condition and expected to survive.

Several law enforcement sources identified the gunman to NBC News as Adam Alsahli, of Corpus Christi.

“We have determined that the incident this morning at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi is terrorism related,” said FBI Senior Supervisory Special Agent Leah Greeves, who did not offer any further details.

“We may have a potential second related person of interest at large in the community,” she said.

The base said earlier that the shooter was believed to be in the vicinity of its north gate.

“If you are in or near the North Gate get out and away to safety,” a Facebook post read. “Execute lockdown procedures — remain indoors and away from windows.”

All gates were closed while emergency responders assessed the scene.
