Update 3: How’s this for a twist?

The AP is reporting that the suspect in Friday’s shooting at a Navy base in Pensacola, Fla. is a Saudi Arabian national. He was attending aviation school in the US, which should raise eyebrows: The last group of Saudi nationals who sought flight lessons in the US pulled off 9/11.

However, his name apparently wasn’t released.

It’s still unclear whether the shooting is terror-related, authorities said, but they are diligently investigating. It’s unclear if the attacker was there on government business or simply as a private citizen, the AP reports.

The shooter opened fire in a classroom building on Friday morning, which suggests he was on the base for a reason. The assailant managed to kill three others before he was killed by officers with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, who arrived on the scene and fatally shot the suspect after exchanging gunfire. FBI and ATF agents also responded to the scene.

At least eight others, including two police officers, were wounded in the cross-fire.

One officer was shot in the leg and is currently in surgery and another officer was shot in the arm and is still at the hospital. Both are expected to survive.
