SAN ANTONIO – Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland lifted a lockdown Wednesday afternoon after two gunshots were reported.
Lt. Col. Brian Loveless said authorities are still trying to verify whether a shooting occurred. Shortly before noon, someone in one of Lackland’s facilities reported hearing two gunshots that came from off-base.
“We have a few leads on what occurred and we’re investigating right now,” Loveless said.
No one was injured in the incident and Loveless said they are being assisted by multiple agencies as they track down information on the reported shooting.
Loveless said they had to take reports very seriously and thanked local law enforcement for their help in the investigation.
SAPD spokeswoman Jennifer Rodriguez said a crime scene has not been located.

In the initial tweet, JBSA called it an “active shooter warning.”
“All base personnel implement LOCKDOWN procedures immediately and take cover. Real World LOCKDOWN, LOCKDOWN, LOCKDOWN,” JBSA tweeted earlier.
The base then eased into a modified lockdown, authorities said just before 2:10 p.m., almost two hours after JBSA told personnel to take immediate cover. The lockdown was lifted fully around 2:30 p.m.
