PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Gates to Norfolk Naval Shipyard were closed briefly Monday morning due to a security situation.

Shipyard officials told WAVY that someone went through the gates without scanning their badge, and that normal procedure requires them to not let anyone else in until the gate runner is identified.

All gates reopened by 6:30 a.m.

WAVY’s working to learn more about the incident.
