Two people are dead and one injured when a gunman opened fire at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii before taking his own life, local news reports have said.

India’s Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria and his team were present in the spot, this at the time of shooting incident but escaped unhurt, reported ANI.

A spokesman for the US base would only say that security forces had responded to reports of a shooting at around 2.30 pm local time on Wednesday, 4 December and that the base was on lockdown for several hours.

One witness told local media he was sitting at his computer when he heard shots fired and saw three victims on the ground.

The witness, who did not want to be identified, said he then saw the gunman who was wearing what appeared to be a navy or sailor's uniform shoot himself in the head.

Hawaii News Now said several civilians were among the gunshot victims.

The shooting reportedly took place near the south entrance to the sprawling base.
