DEVELOPING: LAKEHURST, N.J. -- Officials have locked down the Naval Air Engineering
Center in Lakehurst, N.J.
Median Relations Coordinator Senior Airman David Carbajal says there were several incidents Monday which he is not yet able to provide more information about.
Carbajal says no shots were fired.
The lockdown means traffic can't get in or out of the base, which was where the airship Hindenberg exploded in 1937.
One of the base's main missions centers around equipment used to launch aircraft from aircraft carriers.
Officials placed the Lakehurst portion of the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on lockdown Monday morning, prohibiting anyone from leaving or entering the base The lockdown went into effect about 9:15 a.m. on the 42,000 acre Naval Air Systems Command base (NAVAIR), however it's unclear as to what put base officials on alert.
UPDATE 11:07AM EST: According to Trentonian News, officials locked down the Naval Air Station after reports of shots being fired by a perpetrator.
Currently, a manhunt with a K-9 unit is under way for a man who jumped the naval station’s fence.
Authorities are also looking for a FedEx truck that came onto the base without delivering a package. Allegedly the driver is in possession of a .38 handgun.
The New Jersey state Police Aviation unit, a SWAT Team and federal officers are conducting the manhunt. Officials have established a command post on Route 547 as they attempt to track the alleged shooter.
