The FBI and other law enforcement agencies on Sunday swarmed a “barricaded situation” at a US Army base just outside DC, according to military officials.
Fort Belvoir officials tweeted around 1 p.m. that its law enforcement officials, local authorities and the FBI’s Washington field office’s National Capital Response Squad responded “to a barricaded situation” Sunday morning at the base. No other details were released.
“The situation is ongoing, & we cannot comment further at this time,” the tweet stated, adding a few gates remained open and operational.
