Two people have been killed after an attack at Pearl Harbour, authorities have said.

A US sailor shot three civilian Department of Defence employees at the base in Hawaii, with the third victim wounded.


The sailor then killed themselves, authorities added.

Rear Admiral Robert B. Chadwick, Commander, US Navy Region Hawaii, said: "I can confirm there were three shooting victims.

"We have confirmed that two are deceased, one is in stable condition in a local hospital.

"I can also report that the shooter, who has tentatively been identified as an active duty sailor assigned to USS Columbia, is also deceased by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound."
