Army base locked down amid active shooter reports

Authorities are investigating reports of an active shooter at the Redstone Arsenal, an Army base in Huntsville, Alabama.

Col. Rich Spiegel, a spokesman for Army Materiel Command, said the arsenal was placed on lockdown and those inside were sheltering in place after what he described as “reports of a potential active shooter.”

Redstone spokesman Christopher Colster told reporters that authorities have not yet confirmed whether there is a gunman on the Arsenal grounds.

No injuries have been reported, Colster said.

Spiegel added, “The director of emergency services has responded with local and federal authorities.”
