HONOLULU (1010 WINS) — Two people are dead after a U.S. sailor opened fire at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Wednesday afternoon using his military-issued service weapons, prompting the military to declare an "active shooter situation" and lock down the complex. The sailor fatally shot himself, officials said. 

The two fatalities are civilian Department of Defense employees who work at the shipyard.

A third victim is at a hospital. 

Officials did not suggest a motive, but he has since been identified as G Romero, 22. Neither his first name nor photo were released. 

"We have no indication yet whether they were targeted or if it was a random shooting,"  Commander of Navy Region Hawaii, Rear Adm. Robert Chadwick said.
