FORT LEE, Va. (WAVY) – The U.S. Army confirms an active shooter incident reported on Fort Lee Monday morning.

Fort Lee officials gave an all clear shortly before 10 a.m., less than an hour after the initial alert.

The post’s official Facebook page says the incident was at CASCOM HQ, Bldg. 5020. “All personnel should enact active shooter protocols immediately. The installation is being locked down until further notice. More info to follow.”

Monday’s incident comes a few days after Fort Lee announced a new mass warning and emergency notification system in the works. “Fort Lee Alert” will rely on self registration and is expected to launch in a few weeks, according to a news release.
