The person carrying an AR-15 style rifle with no orange tip is described as a male wearing a purple sweatshirt and black shorts. The base is asking people on site to call 911 if they see anyone moving around to be connected with Base Law enforcement. “Security Forces, foot and mobile patrols are out looking for the suspect,” the base said in an update.
