Joint Base Lewis-McChord

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (AP) — A soldier assigned to Joint Base Lewis-McChord fired several shots into the air from a parking lot early Sunday.

Law enforcement at the base cordoned off the area after the incident at about 4:30 a.m. Law enforcement agencies from Pierce County assisted.

The public affairs office says the soldier was taken into custody at about 5:45 a.m.

No injuries were reported.

Base spokesman Joe Kubistek says he doesn’t know when the solider would be released from custody but that he will likely be held until a decision is made about charges against him.

Kubistek did not expect a hearing on Sunday. He could not release any details about the soldier, including his age or how long he’s been in the military.

The military police will be conducting an investigation into the incident.
