PORTSMOUTH, Va. — Coast Guard boat crews will be shooting blank rounds from their guns while conducting tactical training near Craney Island Friday, just north of Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads.

The Coast Guard has issued a notice to mariners to make them aware of rapid boat maneuvers and gun shots that may be seen and heard in the area.

The training will be with the Coast Guard Cutter Rollin Fritch, a Fast Response Cutter, and small boats that will be firing blanks from their M240 machine guns.
