Airman kills commanding officer 2 Dead Murder-Suicide Lackland AB Texas

(Fox 29)

When I first heard the newsflash about a shooting at an Air Force base, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. 
It didn’t turn out as bad as I thought.  But, this is still a tragedy nonetheless.  Why?  What’s the story here?     

Fox News reports an airman killed his commander before apparently turning the gun on himself, sparking a lockdown at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in Texas Friday, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News.

The shooting was not an act of terrorism, an FBI investigator said. 
The two men were found dead in an office in Forbes Hall on the base's Medina Annex, Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert D. LaBrutta reported. He added that teams found two handguns at the scene, but did not say whether both belonged to the shooter.
Investigators did not identify either of the dead. Police cleared other nearby buildings, F
ox 29 adds.

  1. Lackland, not Lakeland. I was a Security Policeman there for four years. Spent many a night patrolling the Medina Annex. Probably more working as a gate guard there.

    1. Thanks for the heads up, Joe. I was in a rush.
