The tweet continued, “Installation is locked down. Run, hide, fight.”

An email was sent out to employees at the Redstone Arsenal at 10:31 a.m. informing them that this was “a real world event, which is not part of the exercise,” according to AL.com. The facility reportedly was conducting active shooter drills this week.

“The facility is under lockdown and all gates are closed,” the email continued.

The Army Contracting Command tweeted the possible active shooter was not on its headquarters.

Alabama Reps. Robert Aderholt and Mo Brooks said they were “monitoring [the] situation.”

The U.S. army post is located in the northern Alabama, close to the Tennessee border.

Redstone Arsenal opened in 1941 as a chemical weapons manufacturing facility during World War II. After the war, it became home to US rocket research until 1956, when German designers working on ballistic missiles were spun off to become a part of the newly founded NASA.

More than 35,000 employees are hosted at the huge base.

This is a developing story.
