A manhunt was underway in Texas for a possible second suspect after a Thursday shooting at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas that was “terror-related.”
“We may have a potential second related person of interest at large in the community,” Leah Greeves, an FBI supervisory senior resident, told reporters, according to KRIS-TV of Corpus Christi.

In a series of Twitter messages late Thursday, the FBI’s Houston office called on the public to share any information they may have about the NAS Corpus Christi incident.
“We are not ruling out any possible motives and continue to investigate all leads,” the FBI said in a post.
“When we are able to release additional information, we will do so.”

A gunman described as an “Arab male” and later identified by The Associated Press as Adam Alsahli of Corpus Christi was killed in a gunbattle with law enforcement at the station, located along the Gulf of Mexico, about 229 miles southwest of Houston.

Authorities say the suspect tried to speed his vehicle through a security gate at the naval facility around 6:15 a.m. Thursday but was stopped by a guard who managed to put up a barrier in time to block the driver’s access.
A female security officer was shot in the chest during an exchange of gunfire with the suspect, but she was wearing body armor and survived with only minor injuries, KRIS reported.
Other security personnel soon arrived and fatally shot the suspect, the AP reported.

Following that gunbattle, local police SWAT officers and FBI agents surrounded a home in Corpus Christi.
A public records search by KRIS revealed the location to be Alsahli’s last known home address.
