SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Air Force officials say an airman armed with a pistol has barricaded himself in a building at an Air Force base in Colorado that controls dozens of military satellites, but no one has been injured and satellite operations haven't been disrupted.

Schriever Air Force Base spokeswoman Jennifer Thibault says the building was evacuated after the standoff began on Monday.

She says the airman is a member of a security squadron and is armed with his own handgun. Officials haven't determined his motive.

His name, rank and service history haven't been released.

Schriever is about 60 miles south of Denver. Thibault says the airman is in a building where servicemen and women prepare for deployments.
