The shooter, a Marine who sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound, was transported to a Palm Springs hospital after the incident took place at around 08:30 local time.
According to the Desert Sun, the shelter-in-place order has been lifted, and the gates to the base have been reopened.
It is unknown if the self-wounding was intentional or accidental.
The incident began after several individuals reported hearing gunshots, prompting a Military Police response.
The condition of the Marine is unknown.
