It has been reported in the last few hours that a “suspicious person” forced the Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville, Ark., to go on lock-down.

Spokeswoman Lt. Mallory Thornton said the base took the steps “in the interest of protecting all base members,” but did not provide details.

It was reported at a local news outlet that “despite reports to the contrary, there is not an active shooter on base. There is a suspicious individual.” However, a commenter who claimed to reside on the base, said specifically, “Its a shooter, not a ‘suspicious person'” on a Facebook post at the 2MillionBikersDC Facebook page.

The commenter, known as “Silver Wolf,” also said that while there is “not a lot to tell,”

“…they have an idea of who he is, but I am NOT going into that as it has NOT been confirmed officially. They know what to look for as he is wearing body armor , helmet, and some sort of assault rifle.”

A little after 5:00 pm est., he said, “We just got the message!! All clear, repeat, all clear!!!!”

It is unknown whether this individual is authentic. This story is developing.
