PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) -- A Virginia Navy installation is on a partial lockdown after a stabbing, with officials searching for the suspect.

The Navy says the stabbing occurred Friday during an argument between two service members outside the Navy Exchange at Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads, Portsmouth Annex. The installation is home to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.

The Navy identifies the suspect as Petty Officer 3rd Class Wilbur Harwell. The Navy says he hasn't been caught.

Capt. Michael "Jake" Johansson, commanding officer of Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads, says the victim suffered critical injuries. The victim hasn't been identified.

Traffic onto the base is not allowed. Officials continue to search installation buildings. The Navy says it's turning away people with routine medical visits or other business.

The annex is home to the nation's first naval medical center.
