The National Training Center at Fort Irwin California is under full lockdown due to a missing rifle.
As part of the process of accounting for all firearms, the facility enhanced security measures and inspected exiting cars as a precaution. Since then, every weapon has been found.
The National Training Center and Fort Irwin leadership said this in a statement: “We take these matters seriously, these safety precautions were implemented for the safety and security of our soldiers, families, and civilian workforce.”
The National Training Center and Fort Irwin leadership has also thanked the community for their patience and have apologized for the inconvenience.
