Security forces shot at the truck to try to disable it, but the male driver avoided the gunfire and left the base through the same gate, escaping arrest. The gate was closed for seven hours after the chase.

Base officials are working with Alaska State Troopers and Anchorage police to find the driver.

No other details were immediately available.
