A shooting incident occurred Thursday afternoon at an Army National Guard facility just north of Naval Support Activity Mid-South in Millington, Tenn.

The alleged shooter is in custody, and the suspect is a member of the National Guard, said Pat Foughty, a spokesman for Navy Installations Command. Two victims, both soldiers, were shot but suffered non-critical injuries, Foughty said. The suspect was employed at the facility, which is on Navy-owned property but leased by the Guard.

The suspect’s motives are unclear, but the incident is under investigation. The suspect was apprehended by Millington Police shortly after the shootings, Foughty said.

The Millington base was temporarily put on lock-down, but that order has been lifted.
