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 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.

The San Antonio Police Department later arrested the suspect about nine miles from the base after he was involved in a separate incident, according to the report. Camp Bullis, which is used mainly for training Army, Air Force and Marine Corps combat troops, is part of Joint Base San Antonio, which also includes Fort Sam Houston, Randolph Air Force Base, and Lackland Air Force Base. Fort Sam Houston was forced to close another gate and place several buildings on lockdown around the same time as the incident at Camp Bullis after several gunshots were heard from a nearby wooded area outside the gate. It is unclear if the two incidents were related, while the gates and buildings opened hours later, according to the report. There were no reports of injuries to military personnel in the incidents. Joint Base San Antonio did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment.
