The shots were fired at a group of soldiers who were training, according to WDAM. The station reported that authorities were searching for two white men, suspected of having fired from a two-door Ford Ranger pickup truck with the phrase “broken arrow” written on the top. The men then drove away.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the reported shooting near Camp Shelby, a training center that spans more than 134,000 acres (525 square kilometers).

Update, 4:23 p.m. EST: The Associated Press reported that Camp Shelby is a site listed by US Special Forces Command as part of the “Jade Helm 15” training exercise.

WDAM reported that a vehicle matching the description of the pickup has been recovered. A picture of it can be seen below:
