The FBI confirmed early on Friday that a shooting the day before at a US naval base in Texas was likely “terrorism-related,” though officials did not elaborate further. The attack at the station in the city of Corpus Christi left a sailor wounded and the gunman dead. At around 6.15 a.m local time (1100 UTC) on Thursday, the assailant, later identified as Adam Alsahli of Corpus Christi, attempted to gain access to the base by opening fire on the sailor who was guarding the security gate. However, though injured, she was able to roll over and push the button that deployed the gate’s security barrier, denying him access.
