Navy security officers shut down a gate and detained a “suspicious person” Wednesday morning as the person attempted to enter the complex in the Midway District, authorities said.

Shortly before 6:45 a.m., the main gate of the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command — formerly known as Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command — was shut down to vehicle and pedestrian traffic after Navy Security Forces detained a suspicious person who attempted to enter the complex in a vehicle, Capt. Brien Dickson, the base commander, tweeted.

Around 7:55 a.m., Dickson tweeted that the person’s vehicle had been checked and cleared, and that the gate had been reopened.

Shortly before 8 a.m., San Diego police reopened Pacific Highway, which had been shut down between Barnett and Kurtz during the incident.

No additional information was immediately available.
