Lockdown lifted at Alabama military post; no injuries reported

Authorities Investigate Report of Active Shooter at Alabama Military Installation

"We believe that we have learned everything we needed to as part of the event that occurred" Tuesday, Holliday said.

No arrests or injuries were reported after the incident. Colster said he didn't know what had happened and that a "methodical investigation" was underway.

The commander of the post said two 911 calls about a potential active shooter prompted the lockdown at the installation but no shooter was ever found and no shots were fired. "I'm not sure myself".

Still, confusion persisted for some time, as there was already an active shooter drill scheduled for this week, set to focus on the Sparkman Center. The arsenal's 30,000-plus personnel, including military, government agencies and NASA, were immediately placed on lockdown, gates were closed and barricades raised.

Holliday said the response of base personnel was appropriate, given that every USA military base has to be on high alert for potential active shooters and other acts of violence.

The area near the reported shooting has been put on lock down, and people have been instructed to run, hide, and fight, should the need arise.


Officials had said that an active shooter drill was planned for this week, but they have not said if this incident is connected.

An Alabama military post says in tweet it is on lockdown amid reports of possible active shooter.

"The safety and security of our workforce remains our top priority", Redstone Arsenal posted.

However, while Federal Bureau of Investigation and ATF officials told us they were on the scene for responding to the "possible active shooter", other key players in such an event indicated they had not been called upon to respond.

Governor Ivey tweeted, "My office is being updated about the situation...and I will continue to closely monitor and pray for a peaceful and quick resolution".

The building in which the alert is home to the command of the u.s. army's aviation and missiles, said Kim Hanson. The vast majority of people on the arsenal are civilians with less than 1,500 uniformed personnel. He did not provide more details on those incidents.
