TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The public affairs office at an Air Force base near Tucson says no shots have been fired and no one has been hurt, but traffic into and out of the base is limited because of an unspecified security situation.

A fire official says two ambulances were sent to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base on the outskirts of the southern Arizona city.

A base spokesman says traffic has been reduced to a single point entry. Cars are lined up at the base’s main gate and were being turned around.

At least two schools on the base were also on lockdown.

Davis-Monthan is adjacent to the Pima Air & Space Museum and the “boneyard” for old military and government airplanes that is a popular destination for aviation enthusiasts.
