(Reuters) - Shots were fired near Camp Shelby, a military post in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and authorities were searching for suspected shooters, according to local media.

No one was injured in the shooting, WJTV and WDAM television stations reported, and authorities told CNN that it was not an "active shooter" situation.

The shots were fired at a group of soldiers who were training, according to WDAM. The station reported that authorities were searching for two white men, suspected of having fired from a two-door Ford Ranger pickup truck with the phrase "broken arrow" written on the top. The men then drove away.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the reported shooting near Camp Shelby, a training center that spans more than 134,000 acres (525 square kilometers).
