HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — The military says a security scare that shut down an Alabama Army base was a false alarm.
A statement released Wednesday by Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, says someone reported what they thought was a gunshot at the installation Tuesday.
The statement says military investigators have determined that report was wrong, and they’re calling the whole incident a false alarm.
The emergency calls came from within Redstone Arsenal, where more than 30,000 people work. The installation sent a Tweet warning people of a possible active shooter and telling them to “run hide fight.”
The statement says leadership took the threat seriously and acted because workforce safety is a top priority.
