PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- The US Navy is confirming that an active shooter and two victims are dead after gunfire at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola.

The base remains locked down amid a huge law enforcement response.

A sailor whose submarine was docked at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, opened fire on three civilian employees Wednesday, killing two before taking his own life.
