The Army message, which urged personnel to shelter in place, linked to a Hawaii News Now report saying there are "multiple gunshot victims" in an "active shooter situation". At about 3:30 p.m., the news outlet reported the shooter was "secured".

At least three people were injured, and two people were critically injured, according to Hawaii News Now.
