According to the latest information, the suspected shooter is dead.

When officers arrived on scene they found two adult males injured.

The suspect was a Navy hospital corpsman, the US Navy said on Twitter.

Police were called to business around 8:20 a.m.


We are on scene of an active shooter in the 8400 block of Progress Drive.

Jeremy Mutschler, director of marketing for Nicolock Paving Stones, said that his understanding is that the shooting was near the company's Frederick location but not at the business itself.

Police haven't named the business where the shooting took place.

Special agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with a K-9 team are being sent to the scene, the agency said.

Frederick is about a 50-mile drive northwest of Washington, DC.
