Possible Terror attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola by Saudi National

A Saudi national opened fire this morning at a Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida. The attack, which happened in a classroom building on Friday morning, left four dead and multiple people wounded.

Eleven people were shot all together, including two sheriff’s deputies who were the first to respond to the situation, one of whom killed the shooter Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said. One of the deputies was shot in the arm and the other in the knee, and both were expected to recover, he said.

Commanding base officer Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr. would not say if the shooter belonged to the military and said he did not want to speculate on whether the shooting was terrorism-related.

But according to law enforcement sources, the shooter was a second lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force named Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani who was in the United States for training .

Authorities are reportedly investigating whether the incident was related to terrorism. The FBI has taken over the investigation into the shooting, according to a spokeswoman for the Bureau.

This is the second shooting at a U.S. Navy base this week, following an incident Wednesday at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard when a U.S. sailor fatally shot two civilian employees.

  1. Isn’t it about time we stop training any Saudi military personnel? I for one have problems trusting them especially after 9/11. Were just opening ourselves up to problems as our vetting system is not that good. Better to ban them completely then take a chance on another one going off for Allah killing Infidels!

  2. Good question, Warthog. I have a much simpler question. When is the President going to allow our military to carry firearms on military bases? Our military has excellent training in their use, so why not allow them to defend themselves? It seems to me that, in this one area, our military isn’t allowed to exercise their Second Amendment rights!

  3. I agree Texan. It’s high time that our military be allowed to carry a military weapon for self defense (open or concealed)….at least while they are on duty and it does not pose a hinderance to their duties–off duty is another issue (no alcohol). Until this is done, base and post shootings will continue but at lease if another shooting occurs a few lives might be saved. In addition, it is statistically proven that the presence of a weapon tends to keep civility and calmness is abundant.
