Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith tells WDAM-TV (https://bit.ly/1UlrHi6) that the shots were fired just after noon Tuesday. The soldiers were training at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center in Hattiesburg.
U.S. Special Forces Command designated Camp Shelby as one of the sites where a multi-state military training exercise, “Jade Helm 15”, was expected to take place, according to The Army Times . . .
A vehicle matching the description of the two suspects’ truck was found near New Augusta off Old Augusta Road, according to WDAM. The suspects were driving a red Ford Ranger with the words “broken arrow” on the windshield.
Conspiracy theory websites have noted that a logo used in a “leaked” slideshow presentation for the “Jade Helm 15” exercise featured broken arrows in its design. In military terminology, “broken arrow” is code used to signal for assistance when a unit or camp is overrun.
