Active Shooter at Ft Lee

An active shooter has been reported at the Fort Lee Army base in central Virginia.

Army officials say the base is on lockdown and personnel have been told to enact active shooter protocols.

The four-story building involved is the headquarters for the Army's Combined Arms Support Command.

No other details were immediately available. The Department of Homeland Security uses the term "active shooter" to describe someone actively trying to kill people, usually in populated areas, with no pattern of choosing victims.

Fort Lee is about 25 miles south of Richmond and about 130 miles from Washington. According to the military's website, Fort Lee is the Army's third-largest training site. Its daily population is 34,000, with service members, families, civilians and contractors.

I just saw this, and if I'm not mistaken they've given the all clear... wonder if it will be another "work place violence".

I just saw an article stating the all clear was issued. No reports if anyone was hurt.

I was waiting to hear more details on the news, but it looks like Michael Brown's funeral is more important than anything else in the world right now.

HLN said that a female soldier shot herself, but that's all that was said.

Of course it is! 

*I'm going to leave it at that. I'm so sick of that moronic town and their moronic people.
