For the second straight day, gunshots were fired Wednesday near a military post in Mississippi where US Army soldiers are in the midst of a training exercise.

Soldiers training at Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg reported that shots were fired into the air around 8 a.m. in the same area where gunfire was reported on Tuesday, Lieutenant Colonel Christian Patterson, a spokesman at the Mississippi Military Department, said in a statement.

No one was injured.

Police have reportedly detained a man in connection to the shooting. Authorities were searching the area Wednesday morning when a maroon truck passed. A shot was heard, and police went into pursuit. The suspect claims he has no gun, and that his truck backfired, WDAM-TV reported.

Police have not yet said what is inside the truck, but a Biloxi bomb squad is on the way to the scene to assist in the investigation, according to WDAM-TV. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also on the way to the scene.
On both days, the shooter was described as a white man in a red pickup truck who appeared to have fired from a road outside the base.
