FORT LEE, Va. (AP) -- An active shooter has been reported at the Fort Lee Army base in central Virginia.

The four-story building involved is the headquarters for the Army's Combined Arms Support Command.

No other details were immediately available.

The base is about 25 miles south of Richmond, Virginia, and about 130 miles from Washington. According to the military's website, Fort Lee is the third-largest training site in the Army.
