Travis Air Force Base was on temporary lockdown Wednesday after officials responded to reports of a “real world security incident.”
The base, located in Fairfield north of San Francisco, was in the middle of a training exercise just before 3 p.m. when emergency personnel responded to reports of shots being fired, officials said in a tweet. By 5 p.m. base officials said “no shooter was found,” and the lockdown was lifted.
Travis Air Force Base officials said in a Facebook post on Monday it would be “simulating a security incident” on Wednesday and Thursday.
It was unclear if the reported gun shots were part of the planned training exercise.
No other information was immediately released.
