Sheriff: 2 men fire at soldiers in Mississippi; none hurt

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- The Mississippi National Guard says soldiers reported shots fired during a training exercise at Camp Shelby, but no service members were hurt.

The Guard said in a news release Tuesday that the Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center is secure and all personnel accounted for. The news release says the shots were fired from a road near Camp Shelby, but not on the military post's property.

Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith previously told WDAM-TV (http://bit.ly/1UlrHi6) that authorities were searching for two men who fired gunshots from a vehicle at the soldiers.

He told The Clarion-Ledger newspaper (http://on.thec-l.com/1IWcn9t) that deputies are at a residence where they found the vehicle, which he described as a red Ford Ranger with "broken arrow" written across the top.
