The helicopter fired a round as it was being wheeled out of a hangar at Wattisham Flying Station on Wednesday.
The incident happened after the helicopter suffered a malfunction during a live firing training exercise and was forced to land at Sculthorpe training range in Norfolk, according to The Sun.
The pilots flew back to their base at Wattisham, Suffolk, where the helicopter was set to be repaired and the "negligent discharge" occurred, the newspaper said.
The helicopter was being wheeled out of a hangar - where it had been kept overnight - when it let off a stray practice round, which is yet to be found.
An army spokeswoman told Sky News there were no reports of any injuries or damage.
"We are aware of an incident at Wattisham Flying Station which is being investigated," the spokeswoman said.
Good that nobody was injured.
