JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Little Rock Air Force Base went on lockdown Wednesday amid reports of a suspicious person, though military officials have offered few details about the incident.
No one is allowed to enter or leave the base during the lockdown, which began at 11:45 a.m. Spokeswoman Lt. Mallory Thornton said the base took the step "in the interest of protecting all base members." People who live on base were urged to stay indoors, and visitors were asked to not come to the front gate.
