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.
