Gunman fires shots inside Luke AFB

GLENDALE, AZ - A gunman fired shots Sunday night inside Luke Air Force Base after what police believe may have been a "domestic disturbance".

Lt. Ryan DeCamp told ABC15 a man inside the base fired his gun near the housing units for service members.

DeCamp said the man escaped the base by crashing his vehicle through a steel gate.

Witnesses told ABC15 it looked like the man hit the gate, then backed up and hit it again to escape.

DeCamp said the shooting was not terrorist related.

Authorities said an airman at Luke Air Force Base was responsible for the shooting.

No one was injured and the gunman is in custody. His identity hasn't been publicly released.

DeCamp said business at the base resumed to normal on Monday morning.

DeCamp told ABC15 that Luke Air Force Base officials worked with the Glendale and Avondale police departments on the investigation.
