Two white males are alleged to have been the shooters, who fired from their vehicle before fleeing. This has not been confirmed to be true yet.
This is the first attempt to shoot at military personnel regarding Jade Helm, an operation which is being conducted through September 2015. However, just weeks ago an Islamic jihadist opened fire on military recruitment centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
If you have information on the shooting, you are encouraged to call Perry County law enforcement at 601-964-8461.
