An active shooter has been reported at a US Navy air base in Corpus Christi, Texas. The military facility has been placed on lockdown as law enforcement arrives on the scene, Defence.az reoprts citing RT.


The shooter was reported at around 6.15am local time Thursday. As Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) investigators and local law enforcement responded, airbase officials warned anyone near the north gate of the base to “get out and away to safety.”

"Execute lockdown procedures - remain indoors and away from windows," they added in a Facebook post about the unfolding incident.

Corpus Christi Police Department, meanwhile, urged anyone outside the facility to “avoid the area entirely.”

According to officials at the base, the shooter has been “neutralized.” No other injuries or casualties have been reported.

The Corpus Christi base, which is home to four training squadrons, was briefly placed on lockdown in December, when a person making “verbal threats” was found in possession of a weapon and arrested.
