great, that 15min from my house. They're saying that they have a report of a gun, shots have not been confirmed, neither has the fact that someone has a gun or not.

JSC building evacuated after report of man with weapon
02:48 PM CDT on Friday, April 20, 2007
By Michelle Homer / KHOU.com
A building at the Johnson Space Center was evacuated Friday afternoon because a man with a weapon was inside.

"A person with a weapon was in Building 44," confirmed NASA spokesperson Kylie Clem.

It's not clear if the gunman fired any shots or made any threats, according to NASA spokesperson James Hartsfield.

NASA security responded and HPD was called after the initial call around 1:40 p.m.

More than 15 police cars could be seen outside the building from Air 11.

HPD is also sending SWAT.

At least one ambulance was also sent to the scene, but there have been no reports of injuries.

Building 44 houses the communications and engineering departments.

Evacuated employees gathered outside building 44.
Clem couldn't say for certain how many employees worked in the building.

NASA officials were working to make sure all of the employees inside had been accounted for.

Several workers could be seen standing outside the building.

Space Center Intermediate, a Clear Lake ISD school on the NASA property, was put on lockdown as a precaution.

So...so far it seems that getting seen with a gun is a headline topic.

Hope no one sees me move my rifle from the trunk of my car to the front; I'm camera shy.

Officials: Gunman Barricaded In JSC Building

POSTED: 2:27 pm CDT April 20, 2007
UPDATED: 2:59 pm CDT April 20, 2007




HOUSTON -- A building at the Johnson Space Center was evacuated Friday afternoon after a man with a gun barricaded himself inside and shots were fired, KPRC Local 2 reported.

Officials said a report of a man with a weapon was spotted at about 1:40 p.m. inside building 44, which is the communications and tracking development laboratory, an engineering building.

Johnson Space Center security officers, SWAT and Houston police officers were dispatched to the scene.

Authorities said the man was barricaded in a second-floor office. His identity is not yet known.

It is not yet known if there are any injuries.

Johnson Space Center is located at 1601 NASA Parkway.

Space Center Intermediate School, located at 17400 Saturn Lane, was placed in lockdown mode as a precaution, according to district officials. Parents were asked to not come to the campus until the all-clear is given.

NASA spokesman James Hartsfield said building 44 was "one of the smaller" office buildings on the JSC campus, where Mission Control is based.

Can't say that is suprising.  Have you seen the place lately?  Some of those BOIs (born on the island) are sketchy individuals to say the least.  We used to get a fair shair of GSWs at UTMB from just blocks away.

There are not a lot of trees around the building.

KPRC 2 News said that they will not show the SWAT movements because it might put them in danger!

Jacobs Engineering employee is the whack job with the gun and shots have been fired.

Johnson Space Center


It is in the building just to the left and below the arrow on the map. It sits out away from most of the other buildings.

It is in the "Communications and Tracking Dept." building if that is any help.
