SEOUL, South Korea — Emergency crews responded to reports of a stray round hitting private property Sunday outside the Rodriguez Live Fire Complex north of Seoul.

A home in the area was damaged and one Korean citizen was transported to the hospital as a precautionary measure, the Eighth Army said in a statement.

The incident occurred during U.S. Army training at the complex and involved a non-explosive round, the statement said.

Rodriguez is located not far from the Demilitarized Zone in a level valley surrounded by steep mountains and accommodates a variety of live-fire exercises, including armored vehicles.

An investigation by both U.S. and South Korean officials is under way.
