    LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. - Security forces at Luke Air Force Base opened fire overnight after two suspects in a stolen car drove right through the gate.

    One of those suspects is now dead.

    Take a look at the photos - you'll see a vehicle crashed inside the base near Litchfield Road and Northern. It's the suspect's car.

    According to Glendale police, the suspects drove the car through a gate at the base. A security force officers from Luke got out of his car and approached them. That's when the suspects tried to run him down with the car.

    The officer opened fire on the car and it crashed. One of the suspects died and the other was hospitalized with minor injuries. They were reportedly juveniles.

    The vehicle was reported as stolen.

    Luke Air Force Base Captain Jerry Gonzales says the suspects were trying to get away from the police and does not believe they were targeting the base. Gonzales also said no one at the base was injured.

    The base is not on lockdown and Glendale police are investigating the double shooting.

    Gonzales said the base takes security seriously and the situation was dealt with quickly.

    The owner of the stolen car, a single mother, had just purchased the vehicle on Monday.

    That's too bad for the single mom. Hope she gets a new car soon, without any expense. As for the others, I've always heard that if you were going to mess with somebody, MP's should be close to the bottom of the list.

    She probably just had liability insurance that's why they won't cover it. I have a feeling she might have some donations coming to her so she can buy another car! Those guys were idiots! Running the gate at an Air Force base or any military installation will get killed these days. Oh well, one less in the gene pool!

    Unless she paid cash, the lender would require full coverage.

    HUH?

    What does appropriate action at an Entry Control Point have to do with a psycho terrorist gunning and running around a SRP site?

    ...who was also taken down with appropriate action.
