Two security police officers received minor injuries as a result of an accidental discharge of a firearm at the Y-12 National Security Complex last evening, a federal spokesman said Sunday.
The two employees received first aid on site and were taken to Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge, where they were treated and released, said Steven Wyatt, public affairs manager for the National Nuclear Security Administration Production Office at Y-12.
Wyatt said the incident is under investigation, and no other details are available.
He said he is not aware of any similar event occurring at Y-12.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
