Three men have been killed in a shooting at Quantico Marine Base in Virginia, including the gunman, who died of self-inflicted wounds.
Military spokesman Lt. Agustin Solivan says the shooter and another victim were found dead in the barracks in which he had barricaded himself.
The gunman holed up inside a building at the base after shooting his first victim. The shooting was followed by a standoff until authorities entered the facilities.
The base was put on lockdown, which has now been lifted.
No names have been released, but the shooter is a staff member at the Officer Candidate School, according to Capt Eric Flanagan, a Marine Corps spokesman.
The two others killed were also Marines.
The motives behind the attack remain unclear.
