No Evidence of Gunfire at Naval Medical Center San Diego

A report of a shooting at Naval Medical Center San Diego appears to be a false alarm, the military indicated Jan. 26. Investigators have found nothing to substantiate one person’s report that someone had fired gunshots in the basement of the center’s Building 26.

One witness reported hearing three gunshots in the basement of the building, separate from the main hospital complex on campus at about 8 a.m. PT. The prompted flurry of law enforcement activity, with military and local police searching the building as other officers took up positions nearby. Pedestrians and cars were directed away from the building and the campus and front gate were locked down.

After officers did a preliminary search, there were no reports of anyone injured, and there was no immediate evidence to suggest that a gun had been fired.  

However, authorities at the center’s 78-acre campus are still going through the building as of late Tuesday.
