Naval Air Station Corpus Christi has been locked down due to a shooting near one of the gates, according to recent reports.
The Texas base reported the incident around 6:45 in the morning on Wednesday, and the shooter is reportedly near the northernmost gate.
“NAS Corpus Christi is now in lockdown status,” the base wrote on their Facebook page. “There is an active shooter in the vicinity of the North Gate. If you are in or near the North Gate get out and away to safety. Execute lockdown procedures — remain indoors and away from windows.”
According to KSAT, the shooter has since been “neutralized” and it is not clear how many injuries there, if any.
It is unknown if the shooter was actually inside the base perimeter, or if the incident took place outside of the gates within civilian law enforcement-controlled space.
Built in March of 1941, the Naval Air Station is home to several training squadrons.
The situation is ongoing.
