Los Angeles - An "active shooter" was reported at a San Diego military hospital on Tuesday, the facility in southern California said, warning people inside to take cover or fight back.

"An active shooter has just been reported in building #26 at Naval Medical Center San Diego. All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight," the facility posted on its official Facebook page.

The nearby Naval Base San Diego also posted information online about a possible shooting.

"If in immediate danger, hide or seek shelter in secure space," the base wrote on Facebook.

San Diego, the southernmost city on the California coast, has a sprawling military infrastructure and is a major port for the US Navy.

The hospital is located in Balboa Park, close to San Diego's famous zoo.
