“**!ATTENTION!** An active shooter has just been been reported in building #26 at Naval Medical Center San Diego. All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight. All non-emergency response personnel are asked to stay away from the compound, located at 34800 Bob Wilson Drive, San Diego, CA 92134,” a post on the hospital’s Facebook page read.
"For all concerned, the childcare facilities at NMC are currently secured. All children are accounted for and safe,” officials announced in a statement shortly after 9:00 AM.
The Navy quickly had first responders and K9 units on the scene to clear the buildings, and people were ordered to shelter-in-place as the building went on lockdown so it could be cleared. A middle school and two high schools in the nearby area also went into lockdown.
By 10 AM, people were seen being lead out of the building with their hands up by law enforcement, though no arrests have been made.
Navy Capt. Curt Jones, commanding officer at the facility, said there was "nothing which substantiates" reports of a shooting.
