Sheriff: 1 man fires in vicinity of soldiers in Mississippi

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Authorities searched Tuesday for a man who fired gunshots from a vehicle in the vicinity of soldiers at a military facility in Mississippi, although no one was reported wounded, a sheriff said.

The shots were fired near a checkpoint where two soldiers were standing guard to the Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center, Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith said at a news conference.

"This incident occurred along the eastern edge of Camp Shelby. It did not occur on the base," Smith said.

Authorities do not have a motive. He said earlier reports that two people were involved proved to be wrong.

"We are looking for a 90s model maroon pickup with black rims that sites low to the ground and one white male driver," Smith said
