Three people are dead Friday morning, following a shooting at a marine base.

Officials say the shooting led to a standoff between authorities and the suspect late Thursday night. 

They say the suspect was barricaded in barracks at the base. 

When authorities entered the barracks, they found two victims shot dead, a man and a woman.

The suspected shooter was also found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.      

Officials say all three were marines, and were staff members at the base's officer candidate school.
