HOUSTON — A Johnson Space Center building was evacuated Friday after reports of a gunman inside, Houston police said.

Police were called about 1:40 p.m. for building 44, which houses communications and tracking development laboratory, news reports said.

Johnson Space Center security officers and Houston police, including a SWAT team, were dispatched to the scene.

NASA spokesman James Hartsfield said the building was "one of the smaller" office buildings on the JSC campus, where Mission Control is based.

He declined to speculate on how the person got a gun inside NASA security or his motives.

The identity of the armed man is not yet known.

I thought it was 300,000. At any rate, I'm not sure I see the connection with the current event.
