The active shooter at NAS Pensacola has been confirmed dead.

ECSO spokeswoman Amber Southard confirmed the shooter was dead just before 8 a.m. Friday.

Baptist Hospital spokeswoman Kathy Bowers confirmed the hospital has accepted five patients related to the active shooting.


I hope this does not turn out as bad as it seems. Please update as needed with new information.

Maybe they should use a dart gun the next time, if they want to know the truth.

Military bases are becoming regular targets of these kind of attacks. I think there is more going on than meets the eye and what they are releasing to the public.

Maybe it is something that we should not know, but if that is the case, they need to stop making it breaking news for days.

Americans have very short memories. Keep it local, keep it off the wire, and we will be on to the next story.

This may sound ironic, but military bases are some of the largest "gun free zones". Other than Base Security and some people guarding secure areas no one else is armed. When I lived on Base I wasn't allowed to have a weapon of even to carry concealed. If I owned a weapon I had to check it into the Base Armory and get permission to check it out if I wanted to go shooting.

This was really brought to the forefront after Ft Hood also. Both times there were shootings there in recent years.

Yeah. I'm waiting for more information. I have some friends who work at NAS Pensacola. That was a nice place when I went to Aircrew School there in the early 80's.

Fox is reporting that the shooter was an aviation student from Saudi Arabia. They're investigating whether it is terror-related.

He was practicing having a connecting flight with the Willis Tower.


ETA: In retrospect that joke was in really bad humor, I shouldn't goof on the Saudis since they're our allies and they would never do something like that.

Poor taste indeed Augy.

Before you rip on the Saudis, try thinking about everything they do for us as one of our closest allies.

The shooter -- who was wielding a handgun, despite firearms not being allowed on base -- was confronted and taken out by a pair of responding officers, officials say. Two people were killed at the scene while a third victim died after being rushed to a local hospital. Seven others suffered injuries and are undergoing treatment, including the two officers, one of whom was shot in the arm and the other in the knee. Both are expected to survive.

The government of Saudi Arabia needs to make things better for these victims," Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who says he has spoken to President Trump about the shooting, told reporters during a press conference Friday afternoon. "They are going to owe a debt here given that this is one of their individuals.”


Enter CAIR apologists.

From what I read a commissioned officer in SA? So not just a student but an enlisted soldier? This should be interesting how it pans out since this is not some radicalized local.

“We can safely call this an act of terrorism, not an act of workplace violence,” he told WEAR television.




The member of the Saudi Air Force killed three people at Naval Air Station Pensacola before he was shot dead by officers responding to the scene, the authorities said.

All I can say is.

They better not buy their way out of this.

Okay, let's see...
  • They hate the Jews - which is good
  • They hate the Shia - which is good
  • They hate women's rights - which is good
  • They hate the gays - which is good
  • They hate us - which is good


Yeah, I'm at a loss here.

Naval Air Base. Not Air Force.
My brother was stationed there in the seventies.
I visited him there.
