Dec 4 (Reuters) - A gunman opened fire at the historic military base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Wednesday, base officials said, with local media reporting that at least three people were wounded before the suspect took his own life.

A spokeswoman for the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam confirmed that a shooting had taken place but declined to give any further details.

"The incident occurred at approximately 2:30 p.m. Due to the ongoing security incident, access/gates to #JBPHH are closed," the base said on Twitter, adding that officials would provide further information when it became available.

Hawaii News Now, citing a base spokesman, said three people had been wounded in the attack and that the situation was considered "contained" after a witness saw the gunman fatally shoot himself.

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is a combined U.S. Air Force and Navy Installation located 8 miles (13 km) from Honolulu.

The incident comes three days before the anniversary of the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on the naval base that led the United States to enter World War Two by declaring war on Japan.

Sailor assigned to the USS Columbia snapped, killed two civilians and wounded one. Then killed himself.

Wonder if the guy just cracked. Having served on submarines in Hawaii and elsewhere I can tell you it's stressful as all hell and some guys just can't handle the pressure. We used to say the SSN part of the Fast Attack designation meant Saturdays, Sundays and Nights.

The Navy said the shooter used his service weapon. I suppose he was SP.

He was stationed on the USS Columbia (SSN-771) usually the only armed personnel on board is the Topside Watches (Petty Officer, Sentry and one additional security watch stander when deemed necessary).
