Does anyone have any credible information about the shooting of 2 people inside the px today? I'm pretty sure the female is dead, but I don't know anything other than that.

It was an incident between a female solder and her husband. She was 19 and an ait student. He shot her killing her then immediately shot himself he is supposedly in icu possiply brain dead.

My friend was standing next to the female (the wife) and saw it happen, I just didn't know why; not that I would be able to accept any excuse for endangering so many other people not to mention the poor children that were there and saw it happen as well. I know they were both shot in the head, I figure it had to be an issue of jealousy but I was curious if anyone knew who they were or knew of the 'why' factor. Just a terrible loss, and selfish act.

Hate to tell you, but wasn't in AIT.I've been on duty all day, and she's not in 6th BDE. She was here on some other sort of training.

As I stated before, I know what happened..I was asking if anyone knew the names or unit she was in. My friend didn't pay attention to her unit patch. SO I'm asking for names and or unit information..
