Arizona Air Force Base Locked Down Over “Security Situation”


A US Air force base in Tuscon, Arizona, was put on lockdown on Friday due to an unspecified security situation, according to media reports, as one report suggested gunfire.

“We are currently in a potential security situation and the base is on lockdown,” said staff sergeant Caitlin Jones of the Davis Monthan air base in Tucson.

“Base movements have been reduced to a single point of entry,” she added, giving no further details.

Local television station KVOA reported via its Twitter account that the Tucson Fire Department was responding to the base “for possible patient with multiple gun-shot-wounds”.
