Fort Lee, where the headquarters of the Army’s Combined Arms Support Command is located, was locked down briefly this morning. The lockdown came after reports of an active shooter were released. The shooter turned out to be a female soldier who had shot herself.
According to multiple reports, the shooter injured herself and nobody else. CBSNews.com reported that Army Criminal Investigative Division special agents were on the scene, investigating the incident. There was no word as to why the female soldier shot herself.
Earlier this year, there was a mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. The shooter killed three people and wounded 16 before taking his own life. About four and a half years earlier, a radicalized Moslem carried out a mass shooting that killed 13 and wounded 30 before he was shot by responding personnel.
The shooter was reportedly taken to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center.
