Another Jihadi Killing? 1 Soldier Dead, 2 Wounded in Ft. Bragg Shooting

A battalion commander in the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade stationed at Fort Bragg, NC was killed by a fellow soldier and two other were wounded today by a fellow soldier, who then shot himself.

The shooter is now in custody, and what's termed as 'an investigation' is being conducted by special agents from the Army Criminal Investigation Command:

"This is a tragedy for our community. We don't yet know the reasons for the shooting, but are working with the unit and the affected Families to help them through this difficult period," said Col. Kevin Arata, XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg Public Affairs Officer. "Our prayers are with those who have been affected by this terrible incident."
