1 dead, 1 hurt in shooting at military base

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say two men were shot by security officers after they drove a stolen car through a gate at an Air Force base outside Phoenix during a police chase.

Officials say one of the men died and the other was wounded.

The crash occurred at the entrance to Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, outside Phoenix. The base trains pilots to fly F-16s.

Base spokesman Capt. Jerry Gonzalez said the pair allegedly stole a car and drove through a security gate as they attempted to flee from authorities.

Gonzalez said base security forces set up a roadblock. As the driver tried to run it, security officers fearing for their safety opened fire.
