The incident began at around 11 a.m. on Tuesday when the base warned personnel to stay where they were. It was not immediately known what caused the alert, if an incident was confirmed, or whether anyone had been injured.

"JBSA-Lackland is currently undergoing a security incident and directs all personnel to stay inside their current location," the base said in an alert. A second update from the base urged people to stay away from the Arnold Hall area.

In a third update at 11:43 a.m., the base said: "Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland is currently undergoing a security incident and directs all personnel in the areas of 5506, 5408, 5616 & 5725 stay inside their current locations until further direction. Also, please avoid the area near Stewart St."

Just after 12:30 p.m., the base confirmed that the lockdown had been lifted, but further information was not disclosed. "The security incident at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland has been resolved," the base said.

In April 2016, two people were killed in a murder-suicide at Lackland Air Force Base, which prompted a lockdown that lasted for hours.
