Law Enforcement entities are buzzing around Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas, after an individual reportedly rammed the base barriers and attempted to charge security forces personnel.

The unidentified driver sped past security forces in a stolen car, crashing into a barrier and with such force that his vehicle caught fire.

The driver then dismounted the vehicle and charged the security personnel, who felled the intruder in a hail of gunfire.

The suspect was pronounced dead on the scene, and the security officers who fired the shots have been placed on administrative duties until an investigation can be completed.

The vehicle used in the crime, a grey Ford Edge, was stolen from a gas station not long before the incident.

While the affected entrance is closed, the base has resumed normal operations.
