Suspicious person investigated at LAFB

Investigators are looking into a suspicious person incident at Langley Air Force Base’s west gate this afternoon. Around 2:30 p.m. LAFB security notified the Hampton Police Division about a suspicious, possibly armed person outside the gate. Officers arrived and took the man into custody. Although a weapon was never displayed, the man had approached the entrance of the gate on foot, which made him “suspicious in nature.” Commands were made for the man to stop, but he did not. LAFB closed the west gate temporarily, but it has been reopened. (Source)
