From Mediaite:

According to News4 San Antonio, the initial calls made to police came in at around 8:45 a.m. local time, and law enforcement from both the San Antonio Pplice Department and the Post of San Antonio were responding. KFDN News out of Beaumont, Texas indicated moments ago that one person may have been shot. The Bexar Country Sheriff also took to Twitter immediately to comment, though did not offer any confirmation or details about the rapidly unfolding situation.

Several schools are currently on lockdown due to proximity to Lackland AFB. The schools are Valley ES within the Northside ISD and Armstrong ES, Madla ES and Five Palms ES within the South San Independent School District. Lackland ES also remains on lockdown. According to BCSO spokesperson James Keith, the bodies of two people were found inside a building, known as 147, in the Medina Annex. Officers were first called to the area at about 8:45 am for reports of an active-shooter situation. You always think the worst when you hear of a shooting on a military base these days. My prayers are with those on that base. What an awful occurrence.
