Fort Benning officials in Columbus are investigating a Fort Hood style attack threatened at their base.

The Army Times reports part of the base was on lock down Friday.

It says an anonymous note was found Thursday threatening a massacre similar to the November 5 attack in Texas, along with a box of bullets.

The find prompted a criminal investigation and ramped up police presence at Fort Benning.
