Two people have been shot on the grounds of a U.S. naval base in Millington, TN.

Local news confirms reports via social media that a shooting did take place, and the base is currently on a lockdown. At least one alleged shooter is currently in police custody. The victims were struck in the leg and the foot, and have sustained non-critical injuries.

The base is part of the Navy’s Naval Support Activity Mid-South installation, and houses departments such as Navy Personnel Command, Navy Recruiting Command, the Navy Manpower Analysis Center, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Finance Center.

There are more than 7,500 military, civilian, and contract employees stationed at the base.
