Members of the 106th Signal Brigade perform a timed ruck march to test their physical capabilities during an air assault assessment at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis, Texas on Sept. 25.

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.
