According to the base commander, he was a Saudi military who was receiving aviation training.

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani Saudi – Nationality

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani was a Saudi national and was identified by a United States military official as Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

King Salman of Saudi Arabia called President Trump to offer his condolences and added that Saudi’s were infuriated by the shooting.

Trump wrote on Twitter; “King Salman of Saudi Arabia just called to express his sincere condolences and give his sympathies to the families and friends of the warriors who were killed and wounded in the attack that took place in Pensacola, Florida….”

He also added that the King said that the shooter does not represent in any shape or form the feelings of the Saudi people.

The Saudi embassy in Washington in a statement said that King Salman had directed the kingdom’s security services to cooperate with their American counterparts “to uncover information that will help determine the cause of this horrific attack.”

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani Pilot

Saeed was a member of the Royal Saudi Air Force who was training to become a pilot at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida. The Pensacola naval base has long hosted international students from United States allies for flight training, including high-ranking Saudi officials. A “couple hundred” foreign students are enrolled in the program, said Captain Timothy Kinsella Jr., the base commander.

According to  Captain Kinsella unauthorized weapons are not allowed on the base unless one is part of the security forces. “You can’t bring a weapon on base unless you’re part of the security forces.”

Pensacola Navy Base Shooting – Pensacola Active Shooter

On December 6, 2019 a gunman who was later identified as Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani opened fire in a classroom building at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida killing three people and wounding eight more. According to Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia County, the shooting took place over two floors in a classroom.

According to officials the call for active shooter inside a training classroom at the base came in around 6:30 a.m. Sheriff David Morgan said at a press conference that two deputies from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office confronted the gunman and “negated the threat.” Both deputies were shot — one in the arm and the other in the knee — but are expected to survive.

A spokeswoman for Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Kathy Bowers, said the hospital had received eight patients. According to Chief Deputy Chip Simmons of Escambia County one of the victims transported to Baptist later died. Two other victims died on the base.

“They’re part of the Navy family. They’re part of us, and our heart goes out to those of you who may be affected by this tragedy.”

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani Motive

The officials are still searching for Mohammed’s motives. Two federal law enforcement officials said it was too early to say if the shooting was an act of terrorism, but several Florida politicians labeled it that.

Representative Matt Gaetz alleged that he was convinced, based on what he had been told, that the shooting was a terrorist act, although he declined to say what led him to that belief.

He told WEAR, a local television station; “We can safely call this an act of terrorism, not an act of workplace violence.”

Rick Scott of Florida, also a Republican, said the attack should be considered terrorism, regardless of the gunman’s motivation.
