(CNN) — A shooter at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas has been “neutralized,” the US Navy said in a statement Thursday morning.
One member of the Naval Security Forces has been injured, the statement said.
“All gates on the installation remain closed while first responders process the scene,” the Navy said. “NCIS is en route, and state and local law enforcement are on scene.”
Naval Security Forces responded to reports of an active shooter around 6:15 a.m. CT, according to the Navy’s statement.
The base was subsequently put on lockdown, according to a post on the base’s Facebook page.
Naval Air Station Corpus Christi has been home to Naval pilot training since 1941, according to its website.
