Naval air station near Chicago on lockdown

The Great Lakes Naval Air Station in suburban Chicago is on lockdown Friday morning after a vehicle passed through a security checkpoint without presenting credentials. “We had a gate runner at 7:09 a.m.,” a spokesman said, describing the driver as having cleared an entry-control area “without showing credentials and kept going.” Personnel on the base were being advised to take cover. The 1,600-acre base on the Lake Michigan shoreline about 40 miles north of downtown Chicago, in North Chicago, Ill., is the Navy’s largest training installation and the home of the Navy’s only boot camp, noted the Chicago Tribune.
