    SAN DIEGO — An active shooter was reported at Navy Medical Center San Diego on Tuesday morning, the organization said on social media.

    The shooter was “just reported” in building No. 26 at 34800 Bob Wilson Drive, the center said on Facebook just after 8 a.m. PST.

    “All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight,” the post warned.

    Non-emergency personnel were asked to stay away from the compound.

    The facility has a staff of more than 6,500 military and civilian personnel, and aims to provide medical care to military service members, their families, and those who served in the past, according to its website

    "On its website, Naval Medical Center San Diego bills itself as “the largest and most comprehensive military healthcare system in the Western United States.” It has eight clinics for active duty personnel and nine primary care sites for their family members.

    The facility had more than 1.2 million outpatient visits in 2014, admitting more than 19,000 patients that year. The hospital offers a comprehensive array of medical services, including births.

    Video captured by KUSI showed people walking calmly from the area.

    Law enforcement took up positions nearby, directing pedestrians and cars away from the building in question."

    "SAN DIEGO — Investigators have found “absolutely nothing” to substantiate a report that gunshots were fired in the basement of Naval Medical Center San Diego on Tuesday morning, Navy Capt. Curt Jones said.

    However, authorities still are going though the building and it will take a long time to finish their search, he said.

    He said he’d characterize the person who made the report as “someone who thought they heard something and made reports.”

    The reported gunfire prompted the center to urge people to stay away as police responded.One witness reported hearing three gunshots in the basement of the center’s Building 26, a combination gym and barracks building, at about 8 a.m. PST, Navy spokesman Kevin Dixon said.

    The incident was treated as an active shooter situation, center spokesman Mike Alvarez said.

    There were no immediate reports of anyone injured, military officials said.

    The center, on its Facebook page, said that “all occupants are advised to run, hide or fight.””All non-emergency response personnel are asked to stay away from the compound,” the post read.


    Investigators were interviewing the person who made the report about shots being fired, a U.S. military official said."
