The investigation into the motive of the shooting remains ongoing.

“Yesterday was a rough day for our Detrick Family,” Fort Detrick wrote in a Facebook post. “We experienced loss, confusion, and acts of courage. The events that took place will leave a lasting impact on our community, with a lot of questions, and the biggest will be why? Why did this person choose to do what he did?”

“I wish we had answers to these questions, but, we don’t always know the reason. All we know is that we have an organization, made up of DA civilians, Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine personnel, and families that will/may be hurting over the next few weeks, or months,” the post read.
