UPDATE: A 38-year-old man shot and critically injured two men at a Frederick business park, and was later shot by personnel at Ft. Detrick and pronounced dead on the scene, Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said.

Lando said two men were shot by the suspect at Riverside Tech Park shortly after 8 a.m., where multiple businesses are located. The victims, in critical condition, were transported by helicopter to Baltimore Shock Trauma.

“We have two different scenes. All I can tell you is that we have confirmed there is only one shooter. The public is no longer at risk. Everyone is safe,” Lando said.

Police say the suspect then traveled about 10 minutes to Ft. Detrick and made it onto the premises, where he was shot.
