FORT LEE, Va. (AP) — The Army says early reports indicate that a female soldier turned a gun on herself and fired one shot, injuring herself, on a central Virginia base.
The Army put Fort Lee on lockdown Monday morning, with a report of an active shooter. Officials say the soldier had a gun inside a four-story building that is the headquarters for the Army's Combined Arms Support Command.
Pentagon spokeswoman Alayne Conway says the shooter did not wound anyone, but she was uncertain of the shooter's status. Virginia Commonwealth University says one patient was brought in to its Medical Center but did not give other details.
The lockdown has been lifted.
Fort Lee is 25 miles south of Richmond and 130 miles from Washington. The military says it's the Army's third-largest training site.
