All clear at Navy hospital after active shooter call

Source: WAVY TV 10

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) Navy officials are investigating an active shooter situation at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth Tuesday.

Officials with Portsmouth Naval Public Affairs told WAVY.com they heard an active shooter announcement come over the loudspeaker. Within minutes, the call was ended.

Sources inside the hospital told WAVY.com people were told to shelter in place. Many workers took to social media to talk about it.

Around 10:15 a.m., WAVY.com learned from a source the hospital was in the all clear. The source said it appears to have been a suicide on the base and did not happen inside the hospital.

Although this appears to be a suicide I'm growing deeply concerned about the number of shootings occurring onboard military facilities. I can't explain the ones caused by civilians but how many of the military ones are due to a long and multiple deployment schedule finally taking its toll?

This is what we should be teaching BOTH genders

It's not a son or daughter thing, it's a people thing.

Senator Reid is wrong, entitlement cuts should not be off the table!!!

I can think of plenty of entitlements that we can cut

Farm subsidies to people who don't actually own farms or are large corporate run farms

Subsidies to the oil and gas companies

Tax subsidies to large multi-national corporations that play with the books to write off any U.S. earned profits allowing them to pay no taxes or get a refund

Subsidies on the 1% by capping the maximum contribution to Social Security

I'm sure that I'm forgetting a few more entitlements that we can cut so feel free to add them below.
