Fort Carson investigates 'situation' on post

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Officials at Fort Carson said they are investigating a "situation" at the U.S. Army installation Wednesday.

"This afternoon, an individual displayed suspicious and threatening behavior during a medical appointment at Fort Carson. After statements were made that suggested the individual may be in possession of a weapon, the building supervisor took prudent measures to evacuate and report the incident to authorities.  The individual was later detained without incident," a statement from Fort Carson said.

An initial report from a Fort Carson spokesman indicated that a shooting had taken place but that was later amended to characterize it as a "situation."

Traffic is now reportedly flowing normally in and out of the installation outside Colorado Springs.
