Authorities at Fort Leonard Wood closed Sverdrup Gate due to what authorities later deemed a false positive by military K-9 police.

The north gate was closed since approximately 3:40 p.m., according to the time stamp on their original Facebook post. They reopened it five hours later at 8:40 p.m.

The Fort Leonard Wood Directorate of Emergency Services confirmed the closure was to ensure public safety.
