The incident occurred at 2:30 p.m. HST (7:30 p.m. ET), officials tweeted on the base's verified Twitter account.

A follow-up tweet announced gates to the base had reopened.

"Standby for further information regarding the active shooter incident," officials wrote.

Several witnesses told CNN affiliate KGMB/KHNL that they heard gunshots.

The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu has received one patient from the incident, Minna Sugimoto, a spokeswoman for The Queen's Health System, told CNN.
