A U.S. military base in South Korea was locked down for two hours Tuesday after what turned out to be a false report of an active shooter.

“During an exercise at Kunsan Air Base, an active-shooter incident was reported and the base was put on lockdown at approximately 10:20 a.m.,” said 1st Lt. Ashley Wright, 8th Fighter Wing spokeswoman.

Security Forces immediately responded to the scene, she said.

“While the incident was ultimately proven to be a false report, we take every active-shooter report seriously and will take every action necessary to protect the members of Kunsan Air Base,” Col. Jeremy Sloane, 8th Fighter Wing commander, said in an email.
