Around 6:30 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time Tuesday, military police responded to gunshots aboard Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, California, Marine Corps officials confirmed.

The military police cordoned off the area of the base where the gunshots came from, Butterfield said.

“The individual is currently being treated and will be transported to a medical facility,” the Marine spokesman added.

An investigation into the incident has started.
