A naval air station in Texas was blocked on Thursday morning after an active sniper was reported near one of the facility's gates.
Naval Air Corpus Christi Station said on Facebook that the sniper was "neutralized" and all gates remained closed.
"The NAS Corpus Christi naval security forces responded to an active sniper at approximately 6:15 am. [12:15 GMT] this morning, "said the base on Facebook." The sniper was neutralized. All of the facility's gates remain closed while rescuers process the scene. "
The US Navy tweeted that it was aware of the reports and that more information would be followed when available.

There were no immediate reports of what happened to the sniper or other injuries
The station had a similar blockade last December.
In another incident at the base last year, a man pleaded guilty to destruction of US government property and possession of a stolen gun for hitting his truck on a barricade at Corpus Christi station.
