Air Force police open fire on driver attempting to run gate of Texas base

Air Force police fired several shots Tuesday at a vehicle that sped through the main entry of a Texas base.

An unidentified driver sped in the direction of Air Force guards “at a high rate of speed in the wrong direction of traffic” at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis on Tuesday, speeding through the access control point and gaining access to the installation for several minutes before speeding back through the gate exit, according to a report from Military.com.

“Security forces pursued the driver and took defensive measures when the suspected gate runner attempted to exit the installation via the inbound lane traveling at an excessive rate of speed,” Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis spokesperson Angela Casarez said of the incident, according to Military Times.

Reached for comment by Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for Joint Base San Antonio confirmed that Air Force Security Forces “fired several shots in self-defense” when the subject drove toward them, but noted “no injuries to Air Force personnel, the subject, or damage to Air Force property was reported in relation to this incident” and that it remains under investigation.
