Camp Bullis is reportedly on lockdown as authorities conduct a massive search for an allegedly “armed and dangerous” fugitive, per Adi Guajardo of KENS5 News.
KENS5 reports that Air Force Security Forces and U.S. Marshals are helping multiple polie forces search for a man in the area of JBSA (Joint Base San Antonio) Camp Bullis.
The search began after a police officer questioned the fugitive earlier in the day. The fugitive, upon early questioning, reportedly jumped out of the car (which the police later confirmed was a stolen F-250) and ran across an embankment.
Police say the fugitive does not pose a danger to people in the area as of yet.
The official JBSA Twitter account tweeted of the incident, “An armed suspect breached the fence at JBSA-Camp Bullis at approx. 10 a.m. today. San Antonio Police Dept. officers were in pursuit of the suspect who was driving a stolen vehicle on I-10 when he approached the Camp Bullis gate, which was closed.”
The account added in a followup tweet, “The suspect jumped over the fence & is believed to be armed & dangerous. AF Security Forces, local law enforcement, SAPD & U.S. Marshals are in pursuit of the suspect. JBSA-Camp Bullis is currently on lockdown. No other JBSA locations are affected by the lockdown.”
