A military base in Washington, DC, said it was on lockdown Friday over reports of a “potential armed individual” — telling troops to “prepare to FIGHT.”

“LOCKDOWN LOCKDOWN LOCKDOWN,” the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling warned on Facebook Friday afternoon.

“If you encounter the individual and have a safe route, RUN. If you do not have a safe route to run, HIDE,” the base said.

“Barricade your door, turn off the lights and your cell phone ringer, and remain silent. If you are hiding, prepare to FIGHT.”

The base described the suspect as a black man carrying a Gucci bag, without elaborating on the weapon he reportedly had.

“The information we have at this time is the individual is believed to be armed,” the base said, again without elaborating.

A military base in Washington has been placed on lockdown after a report that an armed person was spotted on the base. Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling posted a note on its Facebook page on Friday, Aug. 13, 2021, that the base was being placed on lockdown.
