Whidbey Island Naval Station Shooting Photos: Full Story & Must-See Details

The Naval Station at Whidbey Island in Island County, Washington is on lockdown with reports of an active shooter at the base made on social media.
According to one post on social media, commands were being made to shelter in place while at the base. Reports of a shooting first came out around 10:40 AM on social media, although officials received reports of a shooting at around 5 a.m. As of yet, all NAS Whidbey Island gates will be closed until further notice.
According to Military Installments, the area, which has over 35,000 residents, places a “no weapons” policy for Ault Field:

“All personnel residing in government quarters are required to register weapons with NAS Whidbey Island. All firearms must be registered with the PPV Housing Office within three (3) days of occupancy or procurement of firearms.”

UPDATE: According to the base’s official Twitter, the Langley Gate has been reopened for base access. So far, there are no reports of injuries.
Although the lockdown was put in place in response to early morning reports of a shooting, it was confirmed on Twitter that no evidence of gunfire had been found:

There was a report of gunfire on Ault Field this morning. Out of an abundance of caution the base was secured. There is limited access and the shelter in place order is lifted. There has been no actual evidence of gunfire. Updates will be provided as they become available.

The base later confirmed it is now working in full operation. An investigation is underway to determine what had caused the earlier reports. At this point, more updates are expected about the story.
As this story is developing, more information will be updated as made available.
