What we know about the shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida

The gunman in a shooting that killed four people and injured several others at Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday morning was a Saudi national, according to Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The FBI has taken the lead in the continuing investigation, though there has been no immediate determination on whether the shooting was terror-related, two sources told USA TODAY.

Authorities said the suspect was among the four people killed. Eight others, including two deputies, were injured and taken to the hospital.

The shooting happened just two days after a U.S. Navy sailor shot three people and killed himself at Pearl Harbor.

Here's what we know:

How many people were injured at NAS Pensacola?
Four people, including the shooter, were confirmed dead, authorities said in a press conference Friday morning. Eight were injured.

Eight patients were accepted to nearby Baptist Hospital. One died there. Three people died on the base. Authorities later announced that another person had also been injured.

The names of the victims will not be released until the next of kin have been notified, the U.S. Navy said in a statement.
