Army: Suspicious vehicle cleared at Md. installation
Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. — Officials at the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland say security forces have cleared a suspicious vehicle was trying to gain access to the installation.
Spokeswoman Heather Roelker said by telephone Wednesday that the installation returned to normal operations around 12: 15 p.m., about three hours after the situation began to unfold at the Maryland Avenue Gate on Route 715. She did not have any details about what prompted the response.
There were no injuries and Roelker says the installation was not on lockdown. People were asked to use another gate.
Aerial images from local television stations showed police vehicles by the gate and a tent set up on the shoulder.
