Hampton Police have taken a man into custody after he was reported to be outside the west gate at Langley Air Force Base and possibly armed.

The complaint was received just before 2:30 p.m.

Police say the man made threats that he had a weapon and he was going to harm himself near the gate.

Hampton officers arrived on scene and took the man into custody after he was spoken to by negotiators.

He did not have a weapon and he was taken to a mental health facility for evaluation.

The investigation is ongoing.
