An active-duty U.S. sailor fatally shot two civilian employees at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Honolulu on Wednesday and injured another before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.

The sailor was assigned to the U.S.S. Columbia, a submarine docked at the shipyard for maintenance, Rear Adm. Robert B. Chadwick II, commander for the Navy in Hawaii, said at a news conference.

The motive for the murders was not immediately clear, nor was it known whether the sailor targeted the victims or fired indiscriminately. All of the victims were men.
