A stabbing that occurred Friday morning left at least one injured at the Navy exchange in Portsmouth, Virginia.

The incident happened near the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, causing officials to order patients and hospital workers to stay inside the hospital while they searched the base for the man in the morning. The hospital was shut off to visitors and in lockdown as officials searched for the suspect, Wavy.com reported.

A code white had been issued on the base as well, alerting everyone that an armed person was lurking in the area.
