One person is in custody after a shooting on Navy property in Millington, Tenn.

The Navy has tweeted that two soldiers were injured, but the injuries are not life-threatening.

The base, which is located near Memphis, was briefly put on lockdown as a precaution. Memphis CBS affiliate WREG says there is an Army National Guard recruiting center at the base, which is the address they say the emergency crews were responding to.

WREG says they were told that the suspect was an employee who was relieved of duty. The suspect allegedly came back to the facility with a gun after being let go.

We are working to get more information.
