Weapon Reportedly Brandished In Altercation At Camp Bullis In San Antonio
Joint Base San Antonio's Camp Bullis saw some unusual activity Thursday morning.
The northwest side of the post was placed on lockdown at 7:40 a.m, when base security forces responded to a report of criminal activity.
“There was a verbal altercation between a civilian who was authorized to be on the installation and some service members,” said Rob Strain, a public affairs specialist with the 502nd Air Base Wing, which provides installation support to JBSA. “During this altercation, a weapon was brandished, allegedly.”
Strain would not comment on the type of weapon involved in the altercation.
The lockdown was lifted at 9:15 a.m., after a suspect was taken into custody. No injuries were reported.
Agents from the FBI and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations are looking further into what happened, according to Strain.
