The office is on property leased to the Guard by the U.S. Navy, which has its personnel and recruiting commands at an adjacent facility in the suburb of Millington. The wounded were taken to hospitals, while the person suspected of shooting them was in custody, Navy Mass Communications Spc. 1st Class William Jamieson said.

The Navy facility was on lockdown after the shooting, but there was no “active shooter situation” in progress, the Navy reported via Twitter. The lockdown was lifted shortly afterward.
