Tuesday's HOT MIC
We finally have an update for you on the Redstone Arsenal incident that caused a lockdown of the facility earlier today. It appears the whole thing may have been a false alarm. According to WDTN:
Officials say two 911 calls triggered the active shooter alert at the Redstone Arsenal Tuesday.
Officials say they don’t know what happened with the two calls, but there was not an active shooter.
Officials acted on this incident and followed regular protocol as if there was an actual gunman.
As you can see from the tweet below, Redstone Arsenal is a massive facility, employing up to 40,000 individuals (many of them civilians) on any given day. It likely took several hours for law enforcement officials to search the compound and make sure it was secure before they could give the all-clear signal.
