(VIRGINIA) - A shooting that prompted a lockdown for hours at a Marine base in Virginia ended with three dead, including the gunman, authorities said early Friday.
The Thursday night shooting at Marine Corps Base Quantico is isolated, said Agustin Solivan, a Marine Corps spokesman.
It forced police to issue a lockdown of the entire base because the shooter was holed up inside a building with a victim, he said.
The lockdown ended early Friday.
The suspect is a staff member at the Officer Candidate School, according to Capt Eric Flanagan, a Marine Corps spokesman. The motive is unknown.
The lockdown was announced across the base using a public address system. Everyone was ordered to stay in their homes with the door locked.
