FBI: Corpus Christi Attack Was ‘Terrorism-Related’

A shooting at the Corpus Christi, Texas Naval Air Station this morning was  “terrorism related” according to authorities. An active shooter attack at about 6:15 a.m. Thursday morning left the attacker and one victim injured.

“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, per NBC News. Agent Greeves did not provide further details on the perpetrator’s terrorist connections.

She did say that the shooter may not have acted alone, adding, “We may have a potential second related person of interest at large in the community.”

CNN reported that the attacker attempted to breach the north gate of the base with a vehicle. When security forces deployed a barrier, the attacker got out of the car and opened fire. Base security returned fire, killing the suspect.

The shooter has not been identified but USNI News reported that a US official had described him as an “Arab male.”

The status of the wounded guard is not known.
