D-M all clear after lockdown

DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE — At approximately 9:50 a.m. Jan. 23, a member in the vicinity of the flightline reported what was believed to be sounds of gunshots. Out of an abundance of caution, lockdown procedures for the base were initiated.

Priority was given to clearing the Child Development Centers and on-base schools in addition to the location of the report to ensure the safety of children first. Security forces members swept these locations and determined them secure before continuing to clear the rest of the installation.

Security forces sweeps were completed at approximately 11:38 a.m. at which time the base was declared all clear. The lockdown was lifted and all operations resumed as normal.

An investigation is ongoing to determine the source of the reported gunshot sounds.
