An active shooter and three gunshots were reported at the U.S. Naval Medical Center in San Diego on Tuesday, triggering a heavy law enforcement response.
Officials later said there was no sign of a shooting and no reports of deaths or injuries.
“There’s no evidence of a shooting right now that we know of, there was just a report of three shots heard,” said Navy Region Southwest spokeswoman Amanda Chavez.
The U.S. Navy had said in an earlier statement, based on initial reports from a witness, that three shots were heard in the basement of a building housing a gym and barracks at the medical center around 8 a.m. PST (1600 GMT).
Military police were talking to the person who reported the shots fired, Chavez said.
First responders and Navy working dog units were on scene clearing the building where the shots were heard, the Navy statement said, adding that the medical center was on lockdown and a shelter-in-place order had been given.
