He was shot.

An unknown person was shot in the United States while trying to enter the territory of the U.S. Marine Corps recruit training center in San Diego (California) with a knife. This was reported by CNN with reference to a representative of the military facility.

The incident occurred on Friday around noon local time. An unknown person drove a car to the checkpoint of a military facility where recruits of the Marine Corps are being trained. The guards ordered him to stop, but the driver got out of the car with a knife in his hands and headed in their direction with “hostile intentions,” the TV channel notes.

After several warnings, the guards were forced to open fire. The unknown person died on the spot. The investigation of the incident is handled by the investigative department of the U.S. Navy.
