HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say gunshots have been fired into the U.S. Space & Rocket Center's Davidson facility in Huntsville.
WAFF-TV reports (http://bit.ly/J3lt3p) that three shots were fired into the building that houses the Saturn V rocket shortly before 10 a.m. Thursday. At least one bullet hit the rocket.
Investigators say the shots were likely fired from Interstate 565 that runs next to the tourist attraction.
Space center spokesman Tim Hall says the shots came from outside the Davidson center and struck windows of the building.
Authorities say there are no reports of injuries, and the scene is secure.
The Little Rock School District says 43 fifth-graders from Carver Magnet Elementary School Students were in the building at the time.
Huntsville Police are investigating the shootings, and a news conference was planned.
