A lockdown at Travis Air Force Base in Solano County has been lifted after a report of an active shooter.

Travis Air Force Base posted on Facebook they responded after a report of gunshots being fired. However, they were unable to find a shooter.

Officials later confirmed there was no active shooter and that a mistaken report led to the lockdown.

The incident was reported at 3:30 p.m., and U.S. Military police officers armed with rifles responded to the incident near the base exchange, which serves as the general store.

The base had been conducting a "rsecurity incident drill" Wednesday, when this actual incident happened.

Officials released a statement on the incident: Travis Air Force Base emergency personnel responded to reports of gunshots at the Base Exchange. However, it was determined to be a false alarm. The base is no longer under lockdown.
