Shooting aboard US Navy warship docked at Virginia naval base

A US Navy sailor and a civilian are dead following a shooting incident aboard the USS Mahan, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, stationed at Virginia’s Naval Station Norfolk.

Officials say the civilian fatally shot the sailor aboard the vessel while it was docked. Authorities would not speculate on the circumstances, specify how the suspect was killed or say how he got the weapon onto the ship.
