Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling posted the following on its Facebook page:

“Be on the lookout for two individuals on base with descriptions as follows: One individual is a black male, medium build with dreads wearing ripped blue jeans and with dreads. The second individual is a black male wearing green pants and a white top. He may be injured. Do not go looking for these individuals. If you see these people, call the Base Defense Operations Center at 202–767–5000.”

The last known location of the suspects was to the south of Blanchard Barracks, according to the post.

“If you encounter the individual and have a safe route, RUN,” the post said. “If you do not have a safe route to run, HIDE. Barricade your door, turn off the lights and your cell phone ringer, and remain silent. If you are hiding, prepare to FIGHT.”
