"An unauthorized individual gained access to Joint Base Andrews. The incident is under investigation," a Joint Base Andrews spokesperson told ABC News in a statement late Thursday. "The Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) is lead on this investigation. Any requests for information related to the incident can be referred to OSI."
