The shooting was reported around 7 a.m. central time Friday; the suspect died just before 8 a.m., Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Amber Southard said. Two deputies who engaged the shooter were wounded. One was shot in the arm and treated at a local hospital, and one was shot in the knee and was undergoing surgery.

The names of the victims will not be released until the next of kin have been notified, authorities said.

NAS Pensacola, situated in the far western Panhandle, employs more than 16,000 military and 7,400 civilian personnel in Escambia County, according to the station’s website. Home of the Blue Angels, the air station is also the primary training base for all U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers pursuing designation as Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers.

  3. That sheriff was really telling it how it is the man speaks the truth….!

  4. Score one for diversity tho…who provides airspace training to Saudis tho? Deja vu anyone?

  5. I’m a Navy Brat – and proud of it! I hate that this happened! I hate it for the victims, their families as well as the witnesses. But I also hate it for the Saudi Arabian people, whether in the US temporarily on vacation or those who live here! Our country does not have a great track record on how it reacts in these situations. I’ve only gotten to 2min 18 seconds into this video and already this man has made comments about how the Saudi government will certainly need to be making this right with the victims families. Geez, can we take care of those who hurt and wounded first? Then maybe a little time for those who didn’t survive? And just for kicks, can we maybe figure out what happened and WHY before we start holding other governments/countries accountable? I’m not in their shoes but I feel safe in saying that no government can write a big enough check to ease the pain of the family and friends of those who died!

  6. All I want to know is who died and how they died? Was it cocaine, was it a disgruntled shipman, maybe a scare for his life shipman? See people already pushing blame to others and never asking the important questions.

  7. Americans love their guns and pay a price for the lack of gun regulations, the USA is like the far West, shootings everywhere and killings everywhere, Trump wants more guns on the STREET, Americans are stupid people, more killings but they do NOTHING, idiots in charge of government on all levels,

  8. Already a failed state in 70 years with no government and a corrupt leader.

    Hitler, Synagogue of satan setting white nationalists up with unnecessary aggressive moves. Iran is minding it's own business and forming strategic alliances with all nations.

    All nations but America despise the murderous apartheid state of Israel. What will happen is Russia and China will intervene, whatever means necessary.

    A Show of Stupidity and A Threat to the Entire World, Istaelis same as Hiler. Abusive, aggressive and violent without provocation. They are abusers.

    The Israeli military has reportedly tested a propulsion system used for carrying nuclear-capable and other missiles, with the occupying entity’s media billing the alleged display as “a show of force aimed at Iran.”

  9. My cousin is on that base right now

  10. Mohammad bin Salman, "MbS," the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, authorized the horrific assassination and chain-saw dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post journalist. Did the Saudi Crown Prince also authorize the slaughter of American servicemen at Pensacola? Comrade Trump-ski looked the other way when Jamal was cruelly murdered. Will Comrade Trump-ski ignore the murder of Americans by a Saudi on American soil? Weren't Saudis responsible for 9/11? Zacarias Moussaoui, a convicted 9/11 co-conspirator, says members of Saudi Arabia’s royal family helped finance al Qaeda in the years just prior to the 2001 terrorist attacks. Comrade Trump-ski is allowing terrorism to raise its ugly head on American soil.

  11. The "nut job" comments are better than the actual story!😂

  12. If you want to know why these types of events take place, they are SCRIPTED by our own government… chk this out.

  13. I'm Muslim but I should say, that's what you get for befriending an evil and twisted country like Saudi Arabia. Saudi royal family should be dethroned and the two holy lands should be detached from Saudi Arabia and maintained by muslim international organization. They are making Muslim all around the world feed them and using our money to bomb Yemen and spread Wahhabism.

  14. We're living in a world of national differences, thus we must be awared as to whom is allowed to be trained on our nation.
    Praying for all involved in this senseless shooting.

  16. Congress was,furious over Trump’s secret efforts to secure a nuclear energy deal with Saudi Arabia. Congress was rightfully furious when they discovered that the Saudis refused to accept limits preventing them from developing a nuclear weapon.

    It was revealed that Trump gave approval for companies to share certain nuclear energy technology with the kingdom without a broader nuclear deal in place.

    House Democrats began investigating the administration’s nuclear talks with Saudi after the Oversight and Reform Committee announced in February it was launching a probe to “determine whether the actions being pursued by the Trump administration are in the national security interests of the United States or, rather, serve those who stand to gain financially as a result of this potential change in U.S. foreign policy.”

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry approved seven authorizations that let U.S. companies share certain nuclear energy technology with Saudi Arabia. 

    lawmakers were outraged when they found out they were not told about the approvals, saying the secrecy violates the Atomic Energy Act, which requires that Congress be kept “fully and currently informed” of 123 agreement negotiations.

    "Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million,” Trump told a crowd at an Alabama rally on Aug. 21, 2015. “Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

    Trump, Kushner, and Ivanka have been running their own criminal organization out of the white house. The Saudis have invested a lot of money into Trump's criminal organization, and they expect a return on their investment….. protection being one of the things the Saudis expect in return.

    In 1991, as Trump was teetering on bankruptcy yet AGAIN, and scrambling to raise cash, he sold his 282-foot Trump yacht “Princess” to Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin-Talal for $20 million.
    Four years later, the prince came to his rescue again, joining other investors in a $325 million deal for Trump’s money-losing Plaza Hotel….Which eventually went under anyway.

    In 2001, Trump sold the entire 45th floor of the Trump World Tower across from the UN for $12 million, the biggest purchase in that building to that point, according to the brokerage site Streeteasy. The buyer: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Since Trump took the oath of office, the Saudi government and lobbying groups for it have been lucrative customers for Trump’s hotels.
    A public relations firm working for the kingdom spent nearly $270,000 on lodging at his Washington hotel through March of last year, according to filings to the Justice Department. A spokesman for the firm told The Wall Street Journal that the Trump hotel payments came as part of a Saudi-backed lobbying campaign against a bill that allowed Americans to sue foreign governments for responsibility in the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

    Attorneys general for Maryland and the District of Columbia cited the payments by the Saudi lobbying firm as an example of foreign gifts to Trump that could violate the Constitution’s ban on such “emoluments” from foreign interests.

  17. "they" allowed the enemies to infultrate again the USA just like on so called 911 it'll always be something , another situation where they act like "they" are in shock , when they've planned it. They know exactly what that Saudi was going to do and when and they allowed it / having wanted it to happen. Just like uncle sam telling mothers they can murder their babies and gays that they can marry. Thats insanity. Just like when "they" gave that shooter his opportunity. WAS plANNED. wAKE UP. AND THEY'RE STILL SAYING "tRUST US" sTILL SAYING gOD BLESS AMERICA WHEN hIS JUDGEMENT IS JUST BEGINNING TO FALL ON usa. "YOU" COMMUNIST = God haters. Repent. Before it's too late and your in Hell awaiting your appointment to stand before the Creator of all things ~ the LOrd Jesus Christ ~ to HIm be all honor and all praise and all glory. Forever. HE was dead but is alive forevermore. And "you" will answer to Him.
