Trying to rush the NAS Corpus North Gate is a bad idea. Even that early traffic is building and the barriers have a depth there to make it easy to completely block access. A couple other times idiots have tried that. Though the main gate is easier on access, the traffic is at least two to three times higher.
We have stayed at the RV Campground at NAS Corpus a few times in recent years.

One member of the naval security forces was injured and is in good condition. The base was put on lockdown after reports of an active shooter around 6:15 am Centrak Time and the suspect attempted to rush the security gate with a vehicle. Security deployed a barrier to stop the vehicle with the suspect exiting the vehicle and opening fire with naval security forces returning fire. It is a very good situation that no lives other than the shooter were lost and it is a crazy situation out there.
