Just a Man
JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) â€" On Monday, a man with a weapon sent Little Rock Air force base into lockdown, before being shot by security.
According to Little Rock Air Force Base officials, the suspect drove up to the main gate, ran over a stop sign and then a curb in an attempt to make his way through. Luckily, he was stopped before he could get in.
"When you first hear something like this, its surreal. You hear it you hope it's an exercise."
But this was no exercise.
According to Little Rock Air Force Base Commander, Colonel Chip Brown, on Monday morning, a gunman approached the bases' main gate in his SUV and tried to force his way in.
"He engaged a street sign but did not actually come thru the front gate or contact any of our barriers," said Colonel Brown.
According to Brown, the suspect, who police say is not a member of the military, got out of his car a rifle in hand. That's when security at the gate opened fire.
