This new information comes one day after base officials said a law enforcement officer fired a shot on the first floor of the medical center as crews were responding to an active shooter report.
The officer who fired the shot has not been identified and has not been placed on leave, said Marie Vanover, director of public affairs at Wright-Patt.
Base officials said Thursday that an officer discharged his weapon to get through a locked door during a sweep of the building.

Base officials are not releasing the initial 9-1-1 call that prompted the active shooter response, and said the call won’t be released until the investigation into the incident is complete. Details of the call are also not being released.

Later calls received by bordering agencies detail the chaos as officers responded. During one call, police can be heard yelling in the background as well as a noise, which could possibly be a gunshot.
U.S. Rep. Mike Turner has asked Wright-Patt installation commander Col. Thomas Sherman for a briefing to learn what led to the response.
