UPDATE 6/9 2:45 p.m.

The lockdown at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland has been lifted.

Around 2:15 p.m., the base went from active shooter lockdown to "modified lockdown."

Lt. Col. Brian S. Loveless said they are trying to investigate some leads to determine whether gunshots actually did occur. He said that it's not confirmed that there were two gunmen at this time, but an investigation is underway.


When asked if the base overreacted, Lt. Col. Loveless said no and responded by saying: "Our response was perfect."

No injuries were reported and the lockdown was lifted and normal operations have returned on base.

The only gate that is still closed is the one at the locations of the shots being fired, officials said.


SAN ANTONIO - The Joint Base San Antonio Lackland base is under lockdown due to an active shooter situation.

Base public affairs confirmed the lockdown. They sent a statement saying that two suspects fired shots toward the base from outside the gates. JBSA trainees were in the area and the shooters ran off.

San Antonio Police, DPS Troopers and others cleared the area and are searching for the shooters.

Base officials sent out an alert message just before 12:30 p.m. to all base personnel informing them of the situation and getting a status check as to their condition.
