Active shooter reported at Naval Medical Center San Diego

By Reuters

SAN DIEGO — An active shooter was reported at the Naval Medical Center San Diego on Tuesday, according to a post on the medical center’s Facebook page.

San Diego police spokesman Officer Travis Easter said police had received a report of a shooter from officials at the medical center, but that they had not requested any assistance and so no officer had been sent to the scene.

The post on the medical center’s Facebook page advised occupants to run, hide or fight. All non-emergency response staff were asked to stay away from the compound. The shooter was reported in building No. 26, the post said.

A representative for the medical center could not immediately be reached for comment.
