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.
