    TUCSON, Arizona-- Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona is on lockdown, but a spokeswoman at the Tucson base would release few details other than no one was being allowed in or out of the base.

    Air Force Staff Sgt. Caitlin Jones refused to tell The Associated Press why the base was on lockdown.

    The base is best known as the boneyard for old military and government airplanes.

    Updated info.

    man with a gun holed up Friday in a building at a sprawling Tucson Air Force base that was locked down several hours earlier on the outskirts of Tucson, a military official said.

    The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

    Traffic into and out of the base was being limited because of an unspecified security situation, but no one was shot or hurt, according to the public affairs office at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Schools at the base were locked down and parents waited for information about when they could pick up their children.


    The lockdown was prompted by reports of someone with something that looked like a weapon, said Tech Sgt. Russ Martin said earlier. Base officials would not confirm reports of a man holed up with a gun.

    "So the base is going into crisis action mode. We're just locking down the base for the safety and security of the people on Davis-Monthan," he said.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Officials confirm man with gun 'holed up' in D-M building

    Tucson - US officials confirm reports that a man carrying what appeared to be a gun entered a building at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson this afternoon forcing a lockdown at the base. They also confirm that the man is "holed-up" inside a building, apparently alone while security officials are attempting to talk to him. The officials also confirm that an FBI team was dispatched to the base, but could not provide details as to why or what specifically they're doing. There were unconfirmed reports that it appeared the man was carrying an M-16.

    Base Commander just said there was no gunman, or gun.

    The commander of an Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson said no gunman or gun was found at the base, despite earlier reports of a standoff.

    A military official said earlier Friday that a man with a gun was holed up in a building at the sprawling base on the outskirts of Tucson and that the base was locked down for several hours.

    The reports prompted a frenzy of activity at the base and in the news media amid unsubstantiated reports that someone had been shot.
