Two people were shot dead and one injured by a US sailor before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide at the Pearl Harbor Naval base, which alongside the Hickam Air Force base, forms part of the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on the Hawaiian island of Ouhu on Wednesday.

According to local media, all three victims were employees of the US Department of Defense (DoD). The shooter, who was identified as an active duty sailor with the US Navy, shot himself dead.

The US Navy's regional commander Rear Admiral Robert B Chadwick, said that the incident happened around 14:30 local time (00:30 GMT). "The lockdown happened within minutes. In addition to a lockdown, a shelter-in-place order was sent out to all personnel on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam," he added.

The incident comes just three days before the 78th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
