Texas base put on lockdown after reports of shooter

Disaster Accident

AP  |  Corpus Christi (US) 

A naval air station in Texas went on lockdown Thursday morning after an active shooter was reported near one of the facility's gates.

Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi said the shooter was neutralized and all gates remained closed. There were no immediate reports of what happened to the shooter or other injuries.

The station had a similar lockdown last December.

In another incident at the base last year, a man pleaded guilty to destruction of US government property and possession of a stolen firearm for ramming his truck into a barricade at the Corpus Christi station.
