Live Updates: 2 victims, suspect "down" in shooting near Army base in Frederick, Maryland

Police in Frederick, Maryland responded to an active shooter on Tuesday and said there are at least two victims. They said the suspect was "down," and two law enforcement sources told CBS News the suspect is no longer a threat.

The shooting happened at an address where a concrete business is located, about 4 miles from Fort Detrick. The Navy confirmed there was a shooting "involving U.S. Navy Sailors" but provided no further details.

FREDERICK SHOOTER: Fort Detrick is a U.S. Army Medical Command installation with about 10,000 military, federal, and contractor employees assigned there.

Jeremy Mutschler, director of marketing for Nicolock Paving Stones, said that the shooting was near the company's Frederick location but not at the business itself.

"There was a shooting within the industrial park where the Nicolock facility is located, and a victim entered our property seeking help," Mutschler said. "Our team was able to assist them and called the authorities. We are pleased to report that all the Nicolock employees are safe."

No further information was immediately available.
