A gunman opened fire Thursday at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, wounding at least one security force member in a "terrorism related" attack, authorities said.

The coastal base in Nueces County, Texas, about 140 miles southeast of San Antonio, was on lockdown after security responded to a report of an active shooter around 6:15 a.m.

The shooter was initially said to have been "neutralized," the base said in a Facebook post, before FBI agents confirmed that he had been fatally shot at the scene.

The injured security force member is in good condition and expected to survive.
