A gunman reportedly took his own life at a military medical facility in El Paso, Texas.

The shooter reportedly opened fire inside the medical facility, encountered return fire from a doctor and then took his own life, according to the El Paso News. Two additional people were injured, CNN reported on-the-air.
A spokesperson with Fort Bliss previously confirmed to CNN that the base was placed on lockdown after an individual opened fire at William Beaumont Army Medical Center.
Images from the scene show cops blocking off all access to the facility. Local authorities have already ceded the scene to military police, according to television station KTSM.

The shooter appears to have entered either the 11-floor Beaumont Medical Center or the four-story VA hospital next door. Both buildings are connected through a corridor, according to the station.

No identities have been released.

This is a developing story. More information will come as it is made available.
