Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., issued a safety advisory Thursday after the discovery of a “suspicious package.”
Officials say the package was discovered outside Building 412, which prompted an evacuation. Authorities then set up a 1,000-foot perimeter and asked for personnel to avoid the area.

Several other buildings are under a “shelter in place” order as authorities continue to assess the situation, WUSA 9 reported.
An ordinance team has deployed to the scene.
The base similarly entered a lockdown a few weeks ago when a “potentially armed person” appeared on the grounds, FOX 5 DC reported.
