The U.S. Navy announced earlier today that a shooting has occurred at a National Guard facility in Millington, Tennessee. The facility is located near Naval Support Activity Mid-South, a United States Navy base.
The shooting happened at about 12:47 PM.
Two National Guardsmen were injured, but there were no deaths.
Millington police, as well as the U.S. Navy, responded to the scene and a National Guardsman, who is a suspect in the crime, was taken into custody.
The naval base was temporarily put on lock down as a safety precaution, but it was soon lifted.
Both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Navy are investigating.
No further details about the shooting at the National Guard facility appear to be available at this time.
