HARRISON TWP.- Macomb County Sheriff officials said a man was shot Wednesday evening after running his vehicle through the main gate at Selfridge Air National Guard Base....security guards fired shots at the man after he rammed his vehicle through the gate about 8 p.m. and ignored orders to stop. The driver led security patrols on a high-speed chase around the base before slamming into a parked car and being run off the road, Carroll said. He was taken to Mount Clemens General Hospital with unspecified injuries
It's the second such incident at Selfridge in recent weeks.

First off, it doesn't have a single word about him being killed.

If it is any sort of effort, it is a very weak attempt. I know boyscouts who could have got in easier and probably with out the trouble. Heck even girl scouts.

It might have been overshadowed by a current investigation in the Milford, Michigan area --- the search for Jimmy Hoffa.
A mentally challenged Fraser man who breached security at the Selfridge Air National Guard Base and was shot and killed by security personnel may have purposely set himself up to get killed, his sister, Tracey Sekula, said.
Timothy James Whisman burst through the main gate at Selfridge with a smile on his face and waved to security personnel, said Michigan State Police Sgt. Craig Nyeholt.
He led 127th Wing Security Forces on a 20-minute chase. Originally described by a base spokeswoman as being "incapacitated" by base personnel, Whisman was shot in the back and killed by a security response team using 9-mm handguns and M-16 semi-automatic rifles.
