2 Men Open Fire on Soldiers at Jade Helm Training Site in Mississippi
A sheriff in Mississippi says authorities are searching for two men who fired gunshots from a vehicle at soldiers at a military facility. No injuries were reported.
Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith tells WDAM-TV (bit.ly) that the shots were fired just after noon Tuesday. The soldiers were training at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center in Hattiesburg.
U.S. Special Forces Command designated Camp Shelby as one of the sites where a multi-state military training exercise, “Jade Helm 15”, was expected to take place, according to The Army Times.
About 4,600 soldiers are participating in the training exercise, which is scheduled to continue through mid-August.
