Police Standoff At Air National Guard Base After Bomb Threat

A person diving a pickup truck was involved in a standoff with Tulsa (OK) Police at the entrance gate to the Tulsa Air National Guard Base.


Tulsa, OK- A person diving a pickup truck was involved in a standoff with Tulsa (OK) Police at the entrance gate to the Tulsa Air National Guard Base.

The incident began at about 11:30 a.m.

Streets have been blocked off and the bomb squad is on the scene.

Police said the woman told them she had a device on her truck and may use it. She drove circles around the flag pole at the the base until TPD used stop sticks to stop her.

Police had their weapons aimed at the truck and were using ballistic shields for protection. At one point a member of the 138th Fighter Wing security force armed with a rifle approached the truck, getting to within about 15 feet, before slowly backing away.

She was taken into custody just before 1:30 p.m. A TPD negotiator talked to her on the phone to try and get her out of the truck.

Police think the woman involved has a history of mental illness and is 28-29 years old. They believe they’ve identified her, but are not releasing her name at this time.

Police said someone called and made a threat against ‘downtown’ earlier today and this may have been the same woman.
