According to WRLD, Naval authorities at the joint reserve base in Fort Worth, Texas, have told reporters that the base is currently on a lockdown.
A suspicious package was found on the base a few hours ago. There is no estimate as to how long the base will remain secured, but officials said that emergency crews have been rushed to the scene.
Naval Security Forces, including the 301st Fighter Wing Explosive Ordnance Disposal team and a Disposal team have responded to the incident, a base spokesperson said in a press release.
Naval Security Forces, the 301st Fighter Wing Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team and the Fort Worth Police Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team are investigating, Krause said.
“Out of abundance of caution, the installation’s main gate will remain closed until further notice,” the base said. “The closure is for the safety of installation personnel and the surrounding local community, which is the Navy’s primary concern.”
Update: Fort Worth Naval Air Station says “an individual was detained” after bomb threat at base’s main gate. Gate remains closed.
