Reports of a suspicious person prompted a lockdown at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Base on Sunday afternoon.

A lockdown was initiated at around 1:30 p.m. after police received reports of a suspicious, potentially armed person in a barracks, according to a base spokeswoman.

D.C. police said law enforcement cleared the scene, finding nothing suspicious.

The base announced that it had resumed normal operations at around 2:25 p.m. after the “all clear” was given.

Joint Base Anacostia–Bolling is the consolidation of Naval Support Facility Anacostia (NSF) and Bolling Air Force Base (BAFB) located in Southeast Washington, D.C.
