Lockdown lifted at Alabama military post; no injuries reported

The U.S. Army post Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, was put on lockdown Tuesday morning amid reports of an active shooter, but an hours-long search failed to find any evidence of a shooting.

The arsenal had posted on Twitter: "Possible active shooter on the Arsenal".

During a news conference just after noon, Redstone spokesman Chris Colster said "We aren't sure what triggered this".

"Huntsville hospital officials said they had not heard of any incoming patients, local TV stations reported".

Earlier today, Marshall Space Flight Center issued an alert about an "emergency situation" near the Sparkman Center.

There were no casualties, and no one was arrested, Holliday said.

In addition to hosting Army Aviation and Missile Command, which tests and develops missile programs, the almost 38,000 acre post hosts about 70 other organizations, including the Army's Material Command, FBI and ATF agents, Air Force units and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.

The base has called off a drill on how to respond to an active shooter because personnel learned "everything they need" on Tuesday, Holiday said.

An active active shooter situation has taken place at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama.

An Army email sent to facility personnel and relatives was more explicit than the tweet, saying an active shooter was on the building's second floor. "I am praying for a swift resolution to this matter".

'The goal of this exercise is to enhance the workforce's ability to respond to a real active shooter event.

"The important thing is everybody's safe", Ivey said.

The Sparkman Center is the headquarters for the Army's Aviation and Missile Command on the Arsenal.
