There are reports of an active shooter at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base at the base hospital, according to an alert sent to base personnel.

We’re hearing reports that someone may be barricaded inside the hospital, according to emergency dispatch traffic. The FBI is reportedly on the scene right now, according to dispatch reports.

“Emergency responders are enroute. All WPAFB Gates are Closed. All personnel take cover. Limit all communication to emergency use only,” according to the alert.

I'm about 30 miles away. There are mixed reports, one of which a weapon discharged during a scheduled training.

Nothing definitive but area schools are coming off lockdown.

This is just another example of why we need tighter air force base controls, though there are those who will argue it's the air force that kills, not the air force base.

About 10 mins. from my front door. I live on the other end and can trhow a rock over the fence of WPAFB.
They say it was a training incident. ? From what i am seeing something dont seem right on the news. The reaction of the people just dont seem like it was a training incident. Anyway Wright Pat will make a statement in a few minutes, this may be interesting.

There was no actual active shooter, it was a scheduled excercise and a person witnessed the training and reported it as a shooter.

announcement just came across

I'd say it's an example of why we need to let servicemembers concealed carry if they want to. Glad it was a false alarm. THIS TIME.

Funny how the media almost acted like they wanted it to be a real active shooter situation.

Perhaps one of the Aliens escaped, and had their bid for freedom....you know, in America, the home of the free?

They did. They salivate over any chance to push their gun control agenda.

I don't know about that, having some dude with PTSD, suffering an Iraq or Afghanistan flashback, perhaps not your best line of defense? But maybe we could get back to our roots, have open carry and some entertaining gunfights in parking lots. But you could have a point, re: the PTSD hazard, as we did, at onetime, think liquored-up and armed was alright. Your concept is uniquely American, must admit.

I didn't say everyone should be carrying. We already had means for Commanders to order members who were having mental health issues to surrender all their weapons, even if they didn't live on base. Such precautions should still be taken. But there's no reason why most of us couldn't concealed carry.

I doubt this event was accidental. Probably a pre-scheduled drill, with a dash of realism thrown in.
