Navy: Virginia Base Locked Down After Stabbing

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth

PORTSMOUTH, Va. -- The Navy says it has put a Virginia base on lockdown following a stabbing.

The stabbing occurred Friday at Naval Support Activity Portsmouth Annex, which is home to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.

Social media posts by Navy Region Mid-Atlantic say a service member was stabbed. A suspect has not been caught. Traffic in and out of the base has also been halted.

The stabbing victim's condition is not known, nor is a motive for the attack.

Navy public affairs officials said they were still collecting details on the incident and would provide further details later Friday morning.

The annex is home to the nation's first naval medical center.

I read something about it earlier. They said it happened in front of the Exchange. Crazy.

Exactly what I was thinking. All the stabbings and shootings these past few weeks.

I hope the victim is ok :(.

It seems like a lot of things keep happening there. Unnerving considering I go there regularly.

I can't understand how this could happen and the suspect not be caught.

This is at least the third incident there in recent months.

The guy who committed the stabbing is apparently AD and on the loose...

It's awful. :-( So much terrible news lately. There is breaking news right now about an assault on a courthouse in GA. Then there was that Canadian gunman? Was he caught or is he still on the loose?

I am not sure exactly where you are located but you and Darby are the first ones I thought of when I read this story.
