A gunman is dead and a woman is in the hospital after a shooting on base Friday morning on Naval Air Station Oceana, officials said.
The shooter was shot by Oceana security personnel, said Navy spokesman Jeff Hood.

The victim, a woman, was shot multiple times but her injuries are not life threatening, Hood said. She was taken to Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital.

The shooting happened at 6:45 a.m. in the parking lot of Strike Fighter Squadron 37, Hangar 145, according to a news release from the Navy. It was resolved in five minutes.

It stemmed from a domestic situation, according to Beth Baker, spokeswoman for Navy Griffin Mid-Atlantic.

The two involved were enlisted sailors. The exact nature of their relationship is unknown, but they were not married, according to Baker.

Navy officials at a news conference this morning declined to identify the two until their next-of-kin have been notified.
