9News reports the man, who was assigned to the USS Columbia, used his gun to kill himself after the attack.

The base, along with several nearby schools, was sent into lockdown shortly after reports of the shooting emerged. That lockdown alert has now been finished and people are allowed to enter and leave.

Hawaii's governor David Ige has released a statement saying: "I join in solidarity with the people of Hawaii as we express our heartbreak over this tragedy and concern for those affected by the shooting."

His statements were backed up by Hawaii Senator Mazie K. Hirono, who wrote on Twitter: "While the investigation into this incident continues, my thoughts and aloha are with the victims of the terrible tragedy at #JBPHH and with their families. I join all of Hawaii in expressing our gratitude to the first responders who rush toward danger every day to keep us safe."
