Authorities are still searching for a man suspected of carrying out two drive-by shootings near a US military base between yesterday (Tuesday) and today.
According to an official statement, a man in a pickup truck shot at two National Guard soldiers manning a checkpoint near Camp Shelby in Mississippi this morning. There are no reported injuries.
The suspect is described as a white male driving a maroon truck with black rims.
County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith says that police are investigating whether the soldiers were targeted or if the incident was hunting-related.
The state governor only recently authorized guards at the entrance to Camp Shelby to carry weapons.
Camp Shelby is the largest state-owned military training site in the United States. It provides training for more than 100,000 troops from all branches of the military. It is also the leaving point for many National Guard troops heading to the Middle East.
Less than a month ago Mohammad Yousef Abdulazees killed five people when he drove through the gate of a US Naval Reserve center and opened fire.
