    Possible threat prompts lockdown at Coast Guard bases

    Two U.S. Coast Guard facilities in the New York area were placed on lockdown Friday afternoon after a retired cop took photos of people on Staten Island holding what appeared to be assault rifles, sources said.

    The lockdown order has been lifted at Coast Guard Sector New York, at Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island, New York. Coast Guard Station Sandy Hook, at Fort Hancock in Highlands, New Jersey, was also placed on lockdown, but it was no clear if the order was also lifted there.

    Fort Wadsworth and Fort Hancock are open to the public as part of the National Park Service's Gateway National Recreation Area.
