Officials put a military base in Washington, D.C., on lockdown temporarily Friday after receiving reports of an armed man entering the location.
“Authorities have responded to the scene, and the threat of an armed individual on Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling has been cleared,” military officials posted on the base’s Facebook page. “The individual was detained and will be transferred to Metropolitan Police Department custody. First responders are still assessing the situation.”
The lockdown at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling was lifted about 2 hours after it began with the arrest of a suspect.
There were no initial reports of injuries.
Authorities initially believed two armed people were on the base, but they later said they were searching for only one man.
