UPDATE: News agencies were thrumming with reports of an active shooter at the Naval Medical Center San Diego earlier this morning. Indeed, earlier this morning, the Center’s Facebook page advised people to “run, hide, or fight”. The Los Angeles Times, however, now reports that there were no signs of casualties or any sort of shooting . . .
There is “nothing which substantiates” reports of a shooting, said Navy Capt. Curt Jones, commanding officer of Naval base San Diego….
“Apparently someone said they heard three shots in the basement of Building 26. Maybe they did or not is not the point; that’s what they reported, so that’s why we responded accordingly,” said Jon Nylander, Navy spokesman. “We haven’t gotten any reports of any injuries.”
Thus, it all appears to have been a false alarm. Or perhaps one of those “gun accidentally went off” situations. A considerable amount of effort was put forth to lock down everything from the Naval Medical Center’s childcare facilities to three schools — Roosevelt Middle School, San Diego, and Garfield — in the San Diego Unified system.
CNN is reporting an active shooter at the U.S. Naval Medical Center in San Diego, California. According to the Center’s Facebook page, “All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight. All non-emergency response personnel are asked to stay away from the compound.” At 8am PST, KTLA-5 said the shooter was “just reported” in building No. 26, located at 34800 Bob Wilson Dr. Stay tuned for more details.
