SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KXAN) — Officials are mum about what prompted a lockdown and call for people to stay away from Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Tuesday.

The military base’s Twitter account first made known to the public at 11:02 a.m. that a ‘security incident’ was taking place, urging people to stay indoors.

Five minutes later, at 11:07 a.m. people on base were told to stay away from Arnold Hall.

Nearly an hour later, several buildings were noted as seeing activity from the incident.

At 12:48 p.m. the incident ended.

It’s not known what happened and authorities have been tight lipped about the incident.

This is a developing story and expected to be updated.
