A gunman’s attack on Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas, Thursday morning that injured one sailor is being treated as an act of terrorism, FBI officials said Thursday afternoon.

FBI agent Leah Greves said there may be “a potential second related person of interest at large in the community.”

“We would encourage the public to remain calm,” she said. “If you see something, say something.”

Calling the investigation “fluid and evolving,” Greves declined to offer additional information regarding what happened.


The sailor was later released from the hospital, according to a Navy statement.
