An active shooter entered the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, Texas on Thursday morning before being “neutralized,” the Navy confirmed on Thursday. At least one person was injured.

“Naval Security Forces at NAS Corus [sic] Christi responded to an active shooter at approximately 6:15 a.m. this morning,” the Naval Air Station said in a Thursday morning Facebook post. “The shooter has been neutralized. All gates on the installation remain closed while first responders process the scene. [Naval Criminal Investigative Services] and local law enforcement are on scene. More information will be provided as it becomes available.”

The Navy also confirmed that one Naval Security Force member had been injured, according to multiple reports. It’s unclear whether that person had been shot or was injured in some other way.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
