Fort Hood officials said that reports of an active shooter on post Wednesday morning, was a false alarm.

According to a statement, after receiving a "credible report," the Fort Hood Directorate of Emergency Services cleared a motor pool of civilians and soldiers "out of an abundance of caution."

It was later determined to be a false report.

Officials say there was never an active shooter incident on post, and there is no danger to the public.
