Three active-duty airmen from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base sustained "minor injuries" while evacuating the area during the Dayton, Ohio shooting early Sunday morning.
The airmen were not injured in the shooting, which ultimately killed 10 — including the gunman — and injured 26 others, according to a statement from 88th Air Base Wing and Wright-Patterson WFB Installation Commander, Col. Thomas Sherman.
"While we are profoundly grateful that none of our fellow Airmen were seriously injured, the base and the entire community are heartbroken over this senseless taking of life," Sherman said in the statement. "The entire Wright-Patt family will keep all in our thoughts and prayers as this community comes together to heal."
No other airmen were injured, Sherman said.
This was the second mass shooting in the U.S. in less than 24 hours — the first being at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

The U.S. military will not disintegrate into an undisciplined horde following President Donald Trump's recent intervention in three war crimes cases, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley assured lawmakers on Wednesday.
Taliban fighters attempted to fight their way into Bagram Airfield on Wednesday by invading a medical facility just outside of the base's perimeter, a spokesman for Operation Resolute Support said Wednesday.
J.P. Lawrence of Stars and Stripes and Jim LaPorta of Newsweek first reported that the battle lasted for several hours after using car bombs to attack the hospital, which is near the base's northern corner. Helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft were reportedly used to drop ordnance on the hospital.
