The US Navy base at Pensacola is on lock down after a bomb threat was made involving one of the barracks on base.

Both gates at the installation are currently closed until further notice. Base personnel have been instructed to shelter in place.

In December of 2019, NAS Pensacola was the site of a terrorist attack that resulted in the shooting deaths of three US military personnel.

Mohammed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force, who was here as an exchange aviation student, was found to have been in contact with al Qaeda before carrying out the attack.

The terror attack lasted approximately 15 minutes. Alshamrani used a Glock 9mm that had five extended magazines.

A deputy from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office ultimately shot and killed Alshamrani.
