“So far I can only say one thing: we have confirmed that there was only one shooter. There is no threat to society, ”he said.

Upon receiving the call, Landau said police arrived at the two-story commercial Riverside technopark, where they found two injured men with gunshot wounds.

Both victims were hospitalized and in critical condition.

As Lando said, then the alleged shooter went to the Fort Detrick military base, located about 6 km from the technopark. There he was shot by servicemen.
