Lockdown lifted at military post; no injuries reported
HUNTSVILLE | Authorities locked down an Alabama military post on Tuesday amid reports of possible active shooter, and workers were advised to “run hide fight.”
About two hours later, the all-clear was given and officials said there were
no confirmed injuries or arrests.
A safety drill was planned for Wednesday, but Redstone Arsenal spokesman Christopher Colster said he wasn’t sure “at this point what happened” at the base near Huntsville. He said a “methodical investigation” was underway.
More than 30,000 government employees, civilians and contractors work daily at Redstone. It is home to Army missile defense programs and other military offices.
NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, which oversees rocket propulsion operations, also is located at Redstone.
