Breaking! Terrorists Attacking Military Bases Inside U.S.! Two Shot!

Good Evening all......I'm very surprised this didn't make it to ATS yet.

Absolutely no idea what to make of this, it hasn't made any news at all.......and would think that the MSM would be drooling all over themselves for this, given the previous base shootings. Reaching out to my old buddies to see if there is something more to the story.

Edit-not trying to sensationalize this, their title, not mine.
Interesting, went to a link in the comments section for the 'full' story, and the story is gone.

Terrorists attacking? Where did you read that? A bit sensationalist, no? Some tools tried to gain access to a military base and were apparently shot.

Much more detailed source.

Is it a terrorist attack cause it is a military base?
Doesn't seem like we know enough yet to call it one.

THV11 Shooting at front gate

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – According to Cpt. Wolf with the Little Rock Fire Department, FBI and the LRFD Bomb Squad are searching a home on Maddox Road in Jacksonville in connection with a shooting incident at the Little Rock Air Force Base on Monday morning.

Officials with the base report that an active threat occurred around 9:15 a.m. at the front gate on Vandenberg Drive. Col. Chip Brown said in a press conference that the suspect was brandishing a rifle.

According to Lt. Col. Christopher Karns who spoke with USA TODAY's Pentagon correspondent Tom Vanden Brook, security forces subdued the gunman who approached the gate. Karns said security personnel fired at the shooter to ensure the safety of others.

Col. Brown said two defenders were directly involved in the incident.

The gunman is said to be in custody, and was transported to UAMS where he is in critical condition. A sergeant with the base told THV11 that the individual is not a member of the military. His name has not been released.

According to Col. Brown, the incident lasted about two hours and 45 minutes. The threat has been mitigated.

All of the base's gates were closed to inbound and outbound traffic, with vehicles being diverted at the intersection of Vandenburg and Marshall streets. As of 12:45 p.m., officials said all buildings of the base are now open. The main gate and the Marshall gate remain closed, while Harris and Arnold Drive gates are open.

A press release from LRAFB detailed that a bystander was taken to a nearby hospital for non-related medical care, and has been released.

Base officials are continuing to investigate the situation, coordinating with Jacksonville police and Air Force Office of Special Investigation.

Oh, I'm not calling anyone anything......That is their accusations......I find it strange that it is 12 hours after the incident and only hearing about it now.

Not terrorist, but stupid.
A death wish pulling up to a secure military base and getting out of the car with a rifle and approaching the gate.
This guy blew a neuron.

Again, not my title.......What I'm concerned about is that it did not make the news cycle at all.....or I was totally asleep today. What if this was more of a controlled test, to see if they could execute something keep it under wraps with only a small report from a local newsroom......Because it should have broke within the first hour.....and then pander out as 'suicide by MP'.....but it wasn't even a blip.

To see which media outlines aren't towing the line.

Right......Horribly sad...and before you execute something, you want to run a few small tests.....'limited damage'.....test the communication lines, flow of information......ability to follow orders......a dry run.

One article I read said the suspect rammed a cop car as well.

Or?

It actually is a terrorist attack that got thwarted. It's still a bit too early to be making any calls...

No matter what it was, it was decidedly not too bright.

America sounds like it is literally starting to collectively go insane. Could it be another disgruntled ex-employee on Prozac? Or an ISIS type of scenario - the lone wolf terrorist, home grown. Little Rock, Arkansas? I recall a lot of interesting events being associated with that area over the years...
