A San Diego Navy base was locked down Thursday and a sailor was detained after a report of an armed man shooting a gun that fired soft plastic pellets.

Capt. Scott Adams says a second serviceman was also taken into custody, The Associated Press Reported.

The Thursday morning report of a possible gunman led to an order that personnel shelter in place on the base, which is home to the Third Fleet command and other major units.

Adams says the shooter told investigators he was firing the pellets from a barracks, using a parking garage mirror as a target. Pellets were found outside the barracks and near the mirror. A base spokesman identified the gun as a so-called airsoft pistol.

The names of the detainees haven't been released.
