HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – A lockdown has been lifted at an Alabama military installation, though officials say they are still investigating a possible active shooter incident there
Christopher Colster, a spokesman for Redstone Arsenal in Hunstville, said Tuesday that officials do not believe there is an ongoing threat.
No injuries or arrests have been reported.
Colster says a training exercise was ongoing that was supposed to end Wednesday.
Officials had said on Facebook that an active shooter training exercise was planned for this week. But Colster would not say whether the active shooter report was part of that exercise, adding: “I really can’t say at this point what happened. I’m not sure myself.”
More than 30,000 government employees, civilians and contractors work daily at Redstone, which adjoins the city of Huntsville and 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.
