The shooting was the second on a naval base in just a few days. Two civilians were killed and one injured at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu on Wednesday when a shooter opened fire on base. The shooter, who was identified as a 22-year-old sailor, killed himself before he could be apprehended.
