FAIRFIELD, Calif. — A lockdown on Travis Air Force Base was lifted Wednesday afternoon after authorities say no shooter was found following reports of gunshots.

The shots were heard at the Base Exchange, according to the base’s Facebook page.

Earlier, the base had announced on its Facebook page that it was responding to a “real world security incident.” According to the page, the incident “is real world and not associated with the scheduled base exercise.”

The public was advised to stay away from the base to make sure emergency responders can respond.

The base is located in Solano County, southwest of Sacramento.
