MERCURY, Nev. (AP) — Authorities shot and killed a man who entered a secured federal site north of Las Vegas where the government used to test nuclear bombs.
A spokesman for the National Nuclear Security Administration says the man failed to stop at the security gate on Monday at the Nevada National Security Site. Darwin Morgan says the man drove for about 8 miles before he parked, got out of his car and approached security officials.

I’m just guessing he was Amish.
Drop the object in his hand. Cell phone, or camera?
Gotta protect dirt craters blown up in the 1950s ya know.
The bureau working for the American people,
or the bureau working for the Swamp and against anything Trump?
Maybe, maybe not. What better place to hide a real Top Secret facility than in a restricted area that is thought to be nothing more than a bunch of bomb craters. Anyhow, the people they have guarding sites like that do not dick around. At the very least, this is suicide by cop (guard).
Sheriff Tony DeMeo's guys?
There is only one FBI. Guaranteed those 29 guys in the raid on Stone included numerous “good ones” who would say they disagree with the coup leadership.
But when ordered, they were out there at 5AM with thier rifles like good little nazis.
Too many movies. That area is restricted out of habit now. There are literally hundreds of nuke craters in that area. Basically, it’s a poisoned zone. There is a public tour available but you cant take a camera or a phone.
You might photograph a crater.
Security theater. Sounds like he had no weapon. They shot him because they had the “right” to. Pure silliness unless it was at night and they thought he was armed by mistake. This is gonna be some moron drunk, thinking he was on the road to the Pahrump bordello.
Will we ever get his identity
“Anyhow, the people they have guarding sites like that do not dick around. “
Meh, this wasn’t the flightline at a B-2 base or a Trident missile sub base. This was a place we did a lot of nuclear testing 50 and 60 years ago.
If it’s a moslem with an ISIS Id card, I’ll eat my hat.
Another Darwin laureate.
can i bring steven wiltshire along with me?
Now well never know why he did it.
Yep. Dead Right There.
Yuge fences, barbed wire and men with guns that will kill you if you dont stay out?
Enuke idea - How ‘bout we guard the Mexican border with this type of commitment?
Area 51 and Groom Lake is there.
Did the Cammo Dudes get him?
There are a lot of adventurers that play chicken with them out there:
These guys are armed. Deadly force signs are posted at the entrance points. There are sensors strategically placed and they know you are coming.
I worked at Area 51 for a few months on a job with a previous employer. At the time (1985), these roaming guards wore Wackenhut Security uniforms. I don’t know when they became “Cammo Dudes”.
I wish the border was protected so well.
An interesting wrinkle to the old “suicide-by-cop” method. If the Feds don’t getcha, the radiation will.
