MIAMI: Shots were fired Tuesday near a US military training center in Mississippi but no service members were hurt, a base spokesman said.
At about 11:45 am troops training at Camp Shelby reported hearing shots, said Lieutenant Colonel Christian Patterson.
“Soldiers reported the incident through their chain of command and it was reported to local authorities. There were no service members who were hurt or injured,” Patterson added.
Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith said the shots were fired from a pick-up truck, but it was not immediately clear why.
The incident comes several weeks after Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, opened fire on two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee and killed four US Marines and a navy sailor before dying in a shootout with police.
