A shooting has been reported at a San Diego Naval Medical Center, and authorities are urging people to stay away.
One witness reported hearing three gunshots in the basement of the center’s Building 26, a combination gym and barracks building, at about 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET), Navy spokesman Kevin Dixon said.
A spokesman for the center, Mike Alvarez, said the incident is being treated as an active shooter situation. Further information about the gunfire wasn’t immediately available.
The center, on its Facebook page, said that “all occupants are advised to run, hide or fight.”
“All non-emergency response personnel are asked to stay away from the compound,” the post reads.
