TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A barricade situation is over at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, but authorities aren’t immediately releasing any details.

A military official said earlier Friday that a man with a gun was holed up in a building at the sprawling base on the outskirts of Tucson and that the base was locked down for several hours.

The reports prompted a frenzy of activity at the base and in the news media amid unsubstantiated reports that someone had been shot.

Base officials wouldn’t say if there was a gunman or if there were any arrests.

The base commander was scheduled to hold a news conference Friday evening to discuss the situation.
