The FBI on Sunday confirmed that the shooter at a U.S. Navy base in Pensacola, Florida on Friday was 21-year-old Saudi Air Force officer Mohammed Alshamrani, who was a student at the Naval Aviation Schools Command at the base. The agency says it has yet to determine the motive for the shooting spree, but is investigating the shooting as an act of terrorism. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports the Saudi government has pledged to fully cooperate with the investigation.
