Lockdown lifted at Redstone Arsenal

039;Active shooter' reported on US army base in Alabama

The impact of a possible active shooter on the arsenal led to increased caution throughout the area.

Limestone County sheriff's spokesman Stephen Young said the reaction to the situation at Browns Ferry was likely "an abundance of caution-type thing based on what's going on elsewhere", referring to the arsenal.

The Arsenal received two calls made to 911 about a possible shooter at the Sparkman Center, the headquarters for the Army's Aviation and Missile Command.

The vast majority of employees at the post are civilian and contract workers. The childcare center was locked down; as were the commissary and other facilities.

Huntsville Police and HEMSI Paramedics responded, though HPD officers primarily provided traffic control around the gates. Colster also said that all gates are locked down, as they have 'prepared for this for years'.

The only exception was near the Sparkman Center.

That includes Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, who said she would continue to monitor the situation and pray for a peaceful, and quick, resolution. "But. those were not actually credible information".

Police cars with flashing lights rushed to the scene and blocked entrances to the post, home to Army missile defense programs, NASA's rocket propulsion operations and federal law enforcement agencies. He says there are no confirmed casualties.

Twitter is active under the hashtag #RedstoneArsenal and Redstone is scheduled to update the media at 1:00 p.m. Movement remains restricted in the area near the intersections and roads around the Sparkman Center. It took another two hours for the massive facility to be given the all clear and employees permitted to return.

"We believe it's a safe situation, and we can allow people to move back around" most of the post, Colster said shortly before 1 p.m.

According to WHNT, the base was supposed to have an active shooter training session this week, but authorities said the incident today is not a drill. He did not provide more details on those incidents.

Holliday said the initial callers said they heard shots and saw a possible gunman. "That in itself drove us to our response", he said.

"I really can't say at this point what happened", he said.
