An active shooter situation prompted a lockdown at Travis Air Force base in Solano County Wednesday afternoon.

Officials said on social media that they were responding to a "real world security incident" at the base. There have been no injuries reported so far. A spokesperson told NBC News there are no reported injuries so far.

A Facebook post around 3:30 p.m. advised people to avoid the area so emergency responders can do their jobs. People were also urged to shelter in place and asked to lock doors and windows.

The facility's main gate was closed, Fairfield police wrote on Twitter, and social media users reported an alleged active shooter situation. Officials have yet to confirm that detail.

Scenes from a news chopper showed people walking around at the base, a sprawling campus located in Solano County. Some people were holding hands as they were being escorted to safety, and police cars dotted the parking lot. The main gate at the base is closed and cars to the campus are being rerouted.

A simulated security drill was scheduled to take place Wednesday and Thursday, but Travis Air Force base officials said on social media the security incident was unrelated to it.

Dozens of parents of military personnel who are based out of Travis posted on the base's Facebook page, looking for information.

Security alert @Travis60AMW. Shelter in place. Lock doors/windows. Await further info. Follow Travis Facebook page for updates.
