The FBI’s Washington field office said its National Capital Response Squad responded to the incident as of 8 a.m
The situation was resolved and the person was taken into custody just before 3 p.m., the FBI said. They provide victim support services and the Army CID is the lead investigative agency.
No one was injured during the situation, the FBI said. No further details were given during the incident, except that some of the gates to the facility remained open.
