U.S. personnel fire shots on RAF base Mildenhall, local police detain bruised man



Monday at or around 1:40 a.m., local time, Suffolk, England police officers responded to an incident, involving an American serviceman firing shots while on the Royal Air Force base at Mildenhall, which is now resolved, according to the Suffolk Police Department.

Multiple media outlets have reported that a British man attempted to pass through the gate and when he was challenged tried to ram the gate with his vehicle.

Because of the disturbance, the base was locked down and a man with cuts and bruises was arrested and taken into custody, the Suffolk police said.

There are no individuals related to the incident wanted by the police. “Police are continuing to deal with an ongoing incident at RAF Mildenhall, it is considered that there is no wider threat to the public or occupants on the base,” the police said.
