Col. Rich Spiegel, a spokesman for Army Materiel Command, said the arsenal was placed on lockdown Tuesday and those inside were sheltering in place after what he described as “reports of a potential active shooter.”
Redstone spokesman Christopher Colster told reporters that authorities have not yet confirmed whether there is a gunman on the Arsenal grounds.
No injuries have been reported, Colster said.
