One person remained under arrest at Fort Sam Houston after a
suspicious vehicle was found in the middle of the post,
spokesman Alex Delgado said.
"There were no other passengers in the vehicle and emergency
personnel report no other individuals are suspected of being
involved," Delgado said.
The base is the home of the U.S. military's medical operations
and the center of its operation to curb the spread of Ebola in
West Africa. Two special teams have been trained at the base to
be deployed to hospitals fighting the viral disease.
Delgado said the driver of the car would remain in custody while
base officials investigated. The spokesman said he was unaware
what prompted officials to view the vehicle as suspicious.
No-one was injured during the incident, he added.
The lockdown, which had stopped traffic from entering the base,
was lifted at around 9 p.m. (CST), about an hour after it was
ordered, and the base resumed normal operations, Delgado said.
Fort Sam Houston is a highly secure facility with guards posted
at all vehicle entrances.
