Wright-Patterson Air Force Base officials have said there was no real active shooter situation at the hospital on Thursday.

Officials are still asking people to stay away from the area of the medical center on base.

Around 12:40 p.m. base emergency responders responded to a reported active shooting at the medical center. Base officials said this incident occurred during a scheduled exercise which included an active shooter scenario at a separate location.

An unknown individual called 911 believing there was an active shooter within the hospital.

“In an attempt to breech a door that was locked, a security forces member discharged his firearm to open the door and continue the sweep of the facility. The scene has been declared safe and all personnel have been advised to avoid the base hospital for the time being,” officials posted.

The ATF Columbus Field Division is responding to the base near Dayton, Oh, to assist.

The base thanked all of the first responders who took quick actions into the incident.
