False alarm sparks lockdown at USA base

Authorities Investigate Report of Active Shooter at Alabama Military Installation

Huntsville-based WAFF-TV reported the installation had an active shooter training exercise scheduled for this week but the station reported Tuesday's incident was not related.

Redstone spokesman Christopher Colster told reporters that authorities have not yet confirmed whether there is a gunman on the Arsenal grounds.

A lockdown has been lifted at an Alabama military installation, though officials say they are still investigating a possible active shooter incident there. Holliday said authorities locked down an Alabama military post on Tuesday after two 911 calls were made about a potential active shooter, but no shots were fired.

The post near Huntsville tweeted that it is on lockdown. A possible active shooter alert has prompted a complete base shutdown and an order to shelter in place and to "run hide fight", to be issued by military officials.

The active shooter drill schedule for this week has been canceled.

The vast majority of employees at the post are civilian and contract workers.

JNPT officials acknowledged that though they are doing their best to help the company, there is very little they can do. The safety of our employees, our operation and our customers businesses is our top priority.

Gov. Kay Ivey tweeted that her office was being updated.

"We want the entire community to know that this arrest eliminates any threat to Huntsville or citizens of Madison County", Dorning said.

Redstone Arsenal is home to the Army's Material Command and its Aviation and Missile Command. There were no casualties in the incident as well, he said. We are waiting to hear more from Redstone officials. The United States Materiel Command, the Army's Aviation and Missile Command, the Department of Defense's Missile Defense Agency and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center all operate within the base.

All gates are locked at Redstone Arsenal, a post near Huntsville.

"If you are not in the Sparkman Center, stay away from the area", the email, sent at 10:08 CT and obtained by CNN, reads.

It took hours to ensure that everyone was safe in the 1.5-million-square-foot (457,200-square-meter) Sparkman Center complex where the shooter was reported.
