DOVER, Del. — Officials at Dover Air Force Base are advising local residents of an active shooter exercise.

Officials say that because of Tuesday’s exercise, access to the base and facilities will be limited during the day.

Officials say personnel can expect significant delays at the gates, but that access to base housing will not be affected.

Military officials are partnering with Delaware State Police in the exercise, and multiple police vehicles will be responding to the base.
