All gates remain closed and the facility is still on lockdown as officials work to clear the scene.

A shooting at the Corpus Christi, Texas Naval Air Station this morning was stopped with one of the members of the security team that responded being injured.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi posted on their Facebook page they went under lockdown but reopened after the situation on the base was resolved.

State and local enforcement officers are now on the scene. One security force member was injured, although there were no details on the severity of the injuries. The alleged shooter, who has not been identified, reportedly was met by security forces sd he approached the north gate, leading to a short exchange between the shooter and security forces.

This is the third active-shooter incident at a naval base in five months.

The shooter has been neutralized by authorities. "Execute lockdown procedures - remain indoors and away from windows", the post read. "Both gates are shut down, please avoid the area entirely".

"TAMU-CC Code Blue: NAS-Corpus Christi is on lock down after a report of an active shooter".
