The Navy has ruled this a false alarm with no signs on a shooting. Law enforcement was said to have acted swiftly.
The shots came from building #26 near the gym as it appears someone fired three shots in the air. The children’s center is now secured and people are being evacuated from the building.
Here is footage of authorities arriving on scene:
