Shooting on Navy property in US; 1 in custody

MILLINGTON, Tennessee (AP) -- U.S. Navy officials say a suspect is in custody after a shooting on Navy property at a facility in Tennessee.

A tweet on the Navy's official Twitter page says Naval Support Activity Midsouth is on lockdown.

A Navy recruiter who had been relieved of duty shot two people at a Navy base and was quickly taken into custody, according to a law enforcement official who had been briefed on the developments.

The injuries were not life-threatening, said that official and another official. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.
