(CNN) — A civilian breached security and boarded a U.S. Navy destroyer at Virginia’s Naval Station Norfolk Monday night, where he fatally shot a sailor on the ship before security personnel shot and killed him, a U.S. defense official said Tuesday.
The Navy earlier confirmed that two men, a civilian and a sailor, were killed in a shooting Monday night on the destroyer USS Mahan.
The incident took place at Pier 1 around 11:20 p.m., according the naval station’s Facebook page. No other injuries were reported, and the names of the people involved were not released.
Naval Station Norfolk was briefly locked down.
