(Fort Lee, VA) -- A lockdown is no longer in place at Fort Lee in Virginia following reports of an active shooter on base. The headquarters for the Army's Combined Arms Support Command was placed on lockdown while base security looked into the reports this morning.

An active duty soldier is being identified as the cause of a shooting scare this morning at the Fort Lee Army base in Virginia.  The base was placed on lockdown when the female soldier reportedly entered a building waving a gun around.  She then turned the gun on herself and fired.  The soldier has not been identified.  She was taken to a local hospital.  The lockdown has since been lifted.  No other injuries were reported.
