Apparently a Battalion Commander at Fort Bragg, NC, was shot and killed yesterday by another soldier during a safety briefing. (Other reports indicated that the unit involved was the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Battalion Brigade and that all injured and killed were from that unit.) The gunman reportedly broke ranks, pulled a handgun, and fired, killing the Battalion Commander. The gunman then shot himself, but survived and is in custody in “serious” condition. A third soldier was injured. The incident is currently under investigation by CID. Names of the injured and killed do not appear to have been publicly released.
