Security breach at Offutt AFB
Recently this year, a man was dead after being shot by Offutt Security Force members. The suspect took off after Sarpy County Sheriffs Deputies stopped him in a possibly stolen car. The man tried to flee cops by driving onto the Offutt Air Force base in Bellevue, but was shot three times after he used the vehicle as a weapon towards guards.
Brigader General Donald Bacon responded, “Well, he ran through the gate without stopping and with the equipment that we have there there’s nothing else we could have done today.”
Brig General Bacon explained the SAC Gate only has speed bumps and security force members to slow unwanted visitors down. “We do have very important security concerns on the base. We practice these incidents and we work hard to get this right. We think our security force members did do this right,” he added.
