Davis-Monthan Air Force Base put out a press release regarding today's "security incident" at the base:

9/16/2011 - DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Base officials have terminated the response to a potential security incident that began at 11 a.m. today.

Increased security measures were taken around the base following the unconfirmed sighting of a man entering an office building apparently armed.

Base officials are currently executing a controlled release of base personnel.

Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel, Tucson Police and Fire Departments as well as other emergency services personnel provided support to D-M personnel as they worked to investigate the situation.

With the help of the Tucson emergency services communities, Airmen were successful in maintaining the safety and security of the Desert Lightning Team.

"All reports regarding the safety and security of our Airmen and their families are taken seriously and we will continue to work to keep them secure," said Col. John Cherrey, 355th Fighter Wing commander.

Information release of the ongoing operations were restricted to prevent the suspect from seeing or knowing what measures were being taken.

A statement will be made by Col. Cherrey at 6 p.m regarding the incident.

Media should be in place at the Craycroft Gate Visitor Center at 5:40 p.m.

For more information contact the 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs at (520)228-3406.
