The shooting happened around 1:20 p.m. Fort Carson officials said the victim was taken to an off-post medical facility with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Fort Carson officials said there is no further danger to the community. Rumors circulated on social media about an active shooter at the PX, but Fort Carson said those rumors were untrue. 

“This is not an active shooter situation but is ‎the result of an altercation inside a home on post,” Fort Carson said in a statement. 

Access to the PX has been temporarily restricted as a precautionary measure. They’re asking everyone to avoid the area until further notice.
