PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Peterson Air Force Base officials have given the all clear after all gates were temporarily shut down and all personnel in the vicinity of the Base Exchange or commissary were told to shelter in place immediately.

Peterson officials say the lockout Monday night was prompted following a report of a suspicious object. Security forces investigated the report and determined the object had been misidentified and there was no threat.
