Shooting reported at Fort Knox military post

Associated Press

FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) — A spokesman for the Fort Knox Army post in central Kentucky says a shooting has occurred there, but he had no immediate word on whether anyone was injured.

Kyle Hodges, a spokesman for the post, says the shooting Wednesday afternoon was near the post's human resources center.

He said late Wednesday that the post remained on a heightened security alert. The port was reportedly locked down at one point, but Hodges said that to the best of his knowledge, that was lifted.

Mary Trotman, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Louisville, said the bureau had dispatched two agents to the post and was assisting in the investigation.
