False alarm prompts lockdown at Air Force base in CA over ‘active shooter’

A falsely reported “active shooter” situation sent the Travis Air Force Base in Solano County, California, into lockdown. Officials have lifted the security alert, after initially asking the public to stay away, as emergency crews responded to a “real world security incident.”

Shortly after 5:05pm local time, the Travis Air Force Base confirmed a false alarm, posting on their Facebook account that “no shooter was found,” despite reported gun shots, and that the “the base is no longer under lockdown.”
