Law enforcement officers investigated a report of shots fired from the Navy Gateway Inns & Suites on Coronado Wednesday morning.

San Diego police, Coronado police and military police from Naval Base Coronado all responded to Bldg. 1500 Rogers Rd on Naval Air Station North Island located on the north end of Coronado.

Sandy DeMunnik, Public Affairs Specialist at Navy Region Southwest Public Affairs, told NBC 7 someone called and reported hearing the sound of gunshots.

However, DeMunnik said, it's believed the report may have been connected to the sound of a dumpster truck.

Even so, as a precaution, law enforcement officers cleared the building and determined there was no threat.

Just before 7 a.m., officials gave the all clear.

The entry control gate was closed for several minutes during the search but traffic was entering the base as of 7 a.m.
