    From what I have seen, base locked down after a shooting at a recruiting center NEARBY.

    2 shot at Millington Navy Base, shooter in custody - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

    Of course every news outlet is going to headline that it took place at the base. It did not.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    I'm not finding any breaking news to that effect on Fox or anywhere else...

    Two US sailors were taken by Nigerian pirates... Is that what you're thinking?
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Press looking for sensational headlines. Shooting did not happen at the base.

    I did not hear of this. Now they are saying it is at a support facility. Sounds like he was in facility left went to car came back with gun started shooting. Good news is they are reporting injuries to victims are not life threatening

    Here's what I found on Fox: Tennessee naval base on lockdown after shooting near base | Fox News

    Seems that anything near a base counts as on the base. Wonder how they'd report a horseshoe contest!
