Fire officials say one person is dead in a shooting at an entrance gate to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla.

Tampa Fire Rescue officials say they were called to the gate at 6:47 p.m. on Wednesday.

Tampa police and MacDill base security are investigating. MacDill spokeswoman Airman Katherine Holt says more information would be available within the hour.
