A sailor was fatally shot aboard a U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer docked in the nation's largest naval base late Monday. Naval security forces then killed the civilian suspect.
A statement issued by the U.S. Naval Station Norfolk said the incident occurred about 11:20 p.m. aboard the USS Mahan (DDG 72).
"Naval Station Norfolk was briefly put on lockdown as a precautionary measure. The lockdown lasted approximately 45 minutes," the statement said. "No other injuries have been reported."
