MIDWEST CITY (KFOR) – Tinker Air Force Base was briefly under lockdown Thursday afternoon, but the situation is now all clear.
Tinker officials announced on the Air Force Base’s official Facebook page shortly before 3 p.m. that the base was on lockdown.
“REAL WORLD: Tinker Air Force Base is currently on lockdown. Seek shelter and apply appropriate procedures as necessary. We will provide updates as they become available via Facebook. #TinkerUpdates,” the post stated.
It was announced 12 minutes later that the lockdown was lifted.
Officials say Tinker leadership initiated the lockdown following a report of a brandished firearm on the installation.
Security Forces determined that the individual was an undercover law enforcement officer authorized to carry a weapon on base.
“We are grateful for the training base personnel receive to enable quick responses to suspected danger.”
No injuries occurred during this incident.
