The U.S. military said security forces are responding to reports of a shooting at a shipyard in Pearl Harbor, one of the Navy’s main facilities.
Pearl Harbor-Hickam Joint Base tweeted that there is a security incident at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard that began around 3.30pm on Wednesday.
Honolulu firefighters responded to the call, Capt. Scot Seguirant said. It’s unclear if there are injuries.
The shipyard is located across the harbor from the Pearl Harbor National Monument, which on Saturday will mark the 78th anniversary of Japan’s attack that led the United States to World War II.
Pearl Harbor is home to the headquarters of the U.S. Pacific fleet and is the home port of 10 destroyers and 15 submarines.
