From KSAT-12:

FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas -
A shooting has been reported at Fort Sam Houston, resulting the injury of at least one person.

Police scanner traffic indicates that a man shot another person in the dormitory area of Fort Sam, near the Binz-Engleman and Harry Wurzbach gates.

The suspect is reported to have fled in a gold vehicle.

There has been no official confirmation of the shooting by Fort Sam officials, but KSAT has a crew on the way to Fort Sam and hope to have an update on our First News at Four.

Tune in to our afternoon newscasts for the latest on this developing story and refresh this page for updates.

...police are looking for an armed shooter...

As opposed to an unarmed shooter, I suppose that makes sense. We don't know yet if it's "workplace violence", it could be just some idiot.

Anyone in a gold (yellow, tan, etc) vehicle within about 500 miles has to have just a twinge of anxiety about now, and hopefully isn’t traveling with their dog.

Sounds like a shooting, not an active shooter.

It’s not open base anymore. You require a military id or pass to get in.

The area right outside the gate isn’t exactly the nicest part of San Antonio.

I’m so overwhelmed with scandals that my first thought is that this was a staged event to take up a little time on the TV news tonight, and that they won’t find the guy.

But I read the article and see that he was caught pretty quickly. I should have added this to my original post.

Don't you remember Dorner? Colors and models don't matter to the police.
