NASA Glenn Research Center on lockdown after reports of shooting
By: WEWS News Staff
CLEVELAND - Brook Park police, the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department and SWAT have been called to NASA Glenn Research Center. NewsChannel5's Paul Kiska reported that at least eight cruisers are at the scene and emergency sirens are going off.
NewsChannel5 got reports that there is a gunman inside building 77. The building is on lockdown. There are two ambulances on standby. They are being kept at the main gate to the facility, which is located near Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
A viewer who has connections inside the building said there were reports of shots fired. An e-mail into newsnet5.com said he is communicating with someone in the building who said one person has been shot and the shooter currently unaccounted for.
False alarm turned internet rumor:
"A security test at NASA's Glenn Research Center caused a brief incident Friday after unconfirmed reports of a gunman in the facility became public. There never was a gunman and no one was in danger at the 350-acre research facility next to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in Ohio, according to NASA spokeswoman Katherine Trinidad."
