UPDATE: 

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — California congressman tells AP that a mistaken report of a shooting led to Air Force base lockdown

---

FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- Travis Air Force Base is under a security alert due to a "real world security incident," the base said in a Facebook post.

The Air Force base had a training exercise planned for Wednesday and Thursday, but this is not related to it, CBS Sacramento reports. The base is located in Solano County, about 40 miles southwest of Sacramento.

The public is being asked to stay away from the base while emergency responders do their job. A shelter in place warning was sent out by the base in a Twitter post.

Fairfield Police say they are not responding to the incident and are deferring to the base.

Beale Air Force Base in Yuba County -- which is a little more than 80 miles north of Travis Air Force Base -- is not on lockdown.
