Breaking: Tucson Airbase on Lockdown
The AP, as well as local news outlets, report the Davis-Monthan Air Force base in Tucson, Ariz. has confirmed that it has stepped up security, but it refused to give details of the situation. The base is currently on lockdown, with reports now coming that no shots have been fired. According to the Associated Press:
Senior Airman Timothy Dunaway says traffic has been reduced to a single point entry but he refused to elaborate.
He says the Sonoran Science Academy on the base is on lockdown.
Although the that site initially reported that shots had been fired and that the reason for the lockdown was due to a shooting investigation, newly released information claims that there were no shots.
Being labeled now as a “potential security situation”, the AZ Daily Star now reports:
University Medical Center remains on alert for trauma patients and both Tucson police and fire crews have responded to the base to help with the undefined incident.
Facts are confused at this point, as local television station KVOA reported via its taiwan free dating sites account that the Tucson Fire Department was responding to the base “for possible patient with multiple gun-shot-wounds.” The KVOA website explains further with the following report:
TUCSON – News 4 Tucson’s Lorraine Rivera says that multiple people leaving the base told her that there was a civilian shooter on the base.
Tucson Fire Department says they are responding to DMAFB for possible patient with multiple gun-shot-wounds. News 4 Crews saw multiple TFD emergency vehicle enter and exit the base.
All this is unconfirmed by base officials, but multiple people leaving the base have told News 4 this information.
