Authorities are searching for two suspects that allegedly fired shots at a group of soldiers at the Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center.
Mississippi National Guard Director of Public Affairs Lt. Colonel Christian Patterson did not confirm that soldiers were targeted.
WDAM reported that Perry County authorities confirmed that shots were fired around 12:10 p.m. at soldiers training in the area.
Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith said that there were no injuries reported, but officers are searching for a two door red Ford Ranger with “broken arrow” written across the top. The suspects are described as two white males who allegedly fired from the vehicle then fled. Lt. Col. Patterson said shots were fired as the truck drove past the base and soldiers were in the area.
Members of the Forrest County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Forestry Commission are assisting in the search.
