Breaking? It broke a while ago.
This is why the military shouldn't have guns
Two airmen were killed in a "a workplace violence incident" on Friday at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, military officials said, with media outlets reporting that an airman shot his commanding officer and then himself.
Two weapons identified as Glocks were found at the scene, Brigadier General Robert LaBrutta, Commander, Joint Base San Antonio, told a news conference. LaBrutta said the two men were the only casualties and he declined to provide further details such as a possible motive.
"This was a workplace violence incident and not the result of a terrorist attack," the U.S. Air Force Joint Base San Antonio said in a statement.
The Air Force Times, citing internal Pentagon communications, reported the commanding officer of a training squadron at the base was shot by an airman who then apparently killed himself in a classroom building.
A Pentagon official, speaking on condition on anonymity, told CNN that the airman shot his commander.
Military officials would not confirm the reports. The Bexar County Sheriff's office described the deaths as a likely murder-suicide.
LaBrutta said individuals are not allowed to carry weapons on base unless they are in security forces or the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations.
"This morning we received one of those calls you never want to receive," LaBrutta told reporters.
"Our hearts and prayers go out to the families that are going to be affected by this tragedy," he said.
LaBrutta said that after an initial report of a shooter, security officers rushed to the scene within three minutes. Both men were found in an office. The shootings occurred at the Medina annex, where operations such as military dog training take place.
...like 6:30 this morning.
Twice in one day at the same place?
Oh shit! This happened again?????? Twice in one day??
wow. that is a whole lot of hate. RIP to the officer.
i hated some officers but only enough to steal their hats and fuck up their purchase orders. never thought of killing them.
more gun control whining from the left coming soonest!
in basic training, when we got to fire the m-16, our instructors told us very plainly, if any of us turned away from the targets and towards them with a weapon in our hands they would drop us.
most people hate their drill or training instructors so it's a good precaution to take! i kinda liked my training instructor. he was a very unusual guy. i'm pretty sure he smoked pot.
I'm surprised this isn't more of a problem in the military. Some dudes simply can't take the kind of pushing around that goes on.
I'm just getting word of JFK being shot.
Let me see if I can tune the radio in a little better.
where is the other thread? Let me guess the title is like code where you have no idea what the thread is about. Like the Bruce Springsteen thread. some people either need to learn how to create a title or just leave the news posting to people that can
Well, considering it happened about 12 hours ago now....
People do get mad when we don't decipher their code before starting a thread.
Make nonsense threads with nonsense titles all you want! Just don't get pissed at me if you make a serious thread with a nonsense title and I duplicate it!
Fuck those fuckers to HELLL!!
Dont sweat it dawg. I have 50 threads on the first page and it was 2/3rds down page two.
I love the thread title "Springsteen... Rebel Rebel" Yeah that really sums up the news story
Well, im shocked the title is a good one.
