BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Navy officials say an officer has fired a shot at a car that tried to hit him at a gate at a military base that includes Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
It happened shortly before noon Tuesday. A spokesman for Naval Support Activity Bethesda says a car leaving the North Gate crashed into a base patrol car with an officer inside.
The spokesman said when Naval security officers tried to intervene, the driver tried to hit one of them with her car. An officer fired his weapon, but authorities do not know if the driver was hit.
Authorities say the driver left the base and Montgomery Country police pursued her.
