No sign of gunman after active shooter reported at California naval medical center

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (WIVB) — Naval Medical Center San Diego says an active shooter was reported at the facility around 8 a.m. (11 a.m. EST) Tuesday.

Despite the report, naval personnel say no evidence was found that indicated the presence of a gunman or even a shooting, following an investigation.

The shooter was reported to be in building #26. A witness reported hearing three shots at the building’s basement.

Non-emergency medical personnel were advised to stay away from the scene. Occupants were advised to either run, hide or fight.

No one has been reported as wounded.

The medical center’s website calls the facilities “the largest and most comprehensive military healthcare system in the Western United States.” In all, it has eight clinics to be used by active duty service members and nine primary care sites for use by their family.

The hospital admitted more than 19,000 patients in 2014.
