Air Force to release report into ‘active shooter’ reaction
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Air Force base in Ohio plans to release its findings into a chaotic “active shooter” false alarm after a 911 call to base security.
The base command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton had a review board study the Aug. 2 scare, the response to it, and any lessons to be learned. Officials plan to detail findings Wednesday.
During a search after the 911 call, a security team member shot a locked door during a sweep of the base hospital as people on the base with some 27,000 military and civilian personnel were locked down. Authorities said at the time that the call came during on-base training that included an active shooter scenario in another base area, but a link wasn’t clear.
No serious injuries were reported.
