Active Shooter Exercise at Sheppard Air Force Base Leads to Real World Lockdown
UPDATE 4/24/14 3:35 PM: SAFB officials have given the all-clear and the base is to resume normal operations. No injuries reported.
Sheppard Air Force Base officials have confirmed that, to err on the side of caution, the base is on lockdown in a real world active shooter situation.
A statement made on the official Sheppard Air Force Base Facebook page says, "During a pre-planned exercise, it appears that a worker using a jackhammer in the AGE yard area produced sounds that were reported as possible shots fired. However, to ensure the safety of base personnel, the incident is being treated as a full active shooter report until Security Forces can 100% confirm that there is no threat to the base."
