FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — One person was dead after a shooting at Marine Base Quantico and authorities were in a standoff early Friday with the suspect, who had barricaded himself in barracks, a base spokesman said.
The shooting happened around 11 p.m. Thursday and the base was put on lockdown, Lt. Agustin Solivan said.
"It's still a standoff situation," Solivan said shortly after 2 a.m. Friday.
Solivan said they believe the suspect, whose name wasn't released, is a staff member at the officer candidate school at the base. No information on the victim was immediately released.
