FORT BELVOIR, Va. (AP) — A “barricade situation” has drawn the FBI and other law enforcement officers to a U.S. military base outside the nation’s capital on Sunday, according to the official Fort Belvoir twitter account in northern Virginia.
The base tweeted shortly before 1 p.m. that his law enforcement officers, local police and the FBI had responded to “a barricade situation” Sunday morning.
“The situation is ongoing and we cannot comment further at this time,” the base tweeted.
It provided no other details, except that some ports to the installation were left open.
Fort Belvoir is about 20 miles from Washington.
