BY BOB PONTING for Fox 5:

Workers at the Naval Medical Center San Diego have been told to shelter in place because of a possible active shooter, the facility reported.

The center posted that the shooter was believed to be in Building 26. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Witnesses told FOX 5 reporter Robert Burns that the shooter fired several shots into the air and not at any people, perhaps as a warning of some kind.

A construction worker at the hospital spoke with FOX 5 reporter Jaime Chambers by telephone and said that he was sheltering in place at the facility. He said he had heard several gunshots and seen heavily armed law enforcement officers  searching the facility.

    The disarmed are running so scared everytime a door slams or someone farts loud enough an active shooter will be called in via 911.
    Easy remedy, all citizens are required to seek firearms training and qualify as marksman at very least in order to receive a drivers license. With the proliferation of an armed society the active shootings will cease.
