This morning, at approximately 9:15 a.m., a male suspect attempted to gain unauthorized access to the base.  The suspect began to exit his vehicle at the main gate and approached Security Forces personnel with a weapon. 

Base defenders engaged the suspect and deterred the threat. The individual was placed in custody and transported for medical treatment at UAMS. His condition was labeled critical, and no other details are available at this time.

"Our Airmen and families are safe, and there is no additional threat to Little Rock Air Force Base," said Col. Charles Brown Jr., 19th Airlift Wing and installation commander, in a press conference this afternoon.

He said this was a joint effort between Little Rock AFB security forces, the Jacksonville Police Department and the FBI, who each provided invaluable service to supporting the incident at the base.

Little Rock AFB will continue to work in concert with our partners at the FBI and Jacksonville Police Department. The FBI is the lead agency in the ongoing investigation, and all questions regarding the suspect and incident should be directed to their staff at 501- 217-2633.
