The US Army’s Redstone Arsenal post in northern Alabama is on lockdown because of a “possible active shooter,” the facility’s Twitter account read Tuesday morning.

An ambulance service has been sent to the facility, said Kristin Clark, a dispatcher for Huntsville Emergency Medical Services.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said her office is being updated about the situation.

“I will continue to closely monitor and pray for a peaceful and quick resolution,” Ivey said on Twitter.
