HONOLULU (KHON2) — All gates have been reopened at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam following an hourslong lockdown that military officials say began following reports of a potential ‘security issue.’

All gates were secured around 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

A shelter-in-place was put in effect north of South Avenue and west of North Avenue while officials investigate.

Vehicles could be seen in standstill traffic fronting the main gates of the base.

“All vehicles should limit their travel on the roadways, and yield to responding emergency vehicles,” said the US Navy.
