The FBI is investigating the fatal shooting at a Naval base in Florida as an act of terrorism, a special agent said Sunday.
Rachel Rojas, special agent in charge of the FBI's Jacksonville office, told a news conference Sunday that the investigation was taking place under the "presumption" it was an act of terrorism, but that the gunman had likely acted alone.
"We currently assess there was one gunman who perpetrated this attack and no arrests have been made in this case," she said.
The FBI officially identified the shooter who killed three people as Mohammed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force who was a student naval flight officer at the Naval Aviation Schools Command at Naval Air Station Pensacola.
Authorities are still searching for a motive for the rampage which also injured eight others.
