    Official: Battalion commander dead in Fort Bragg shooting - U.S. News
    The shooter, an enlisted man, has expired. He shot himself. The third victim was released from the hospital. The EM was under investigation and facing court-martial for stealing a tool kit from the motor pool.

    Fratricide.

    Sad incident. Was the shooter deployed or about to be deployed against his wishes?

    He was about to be court-martialled for theft. The Bn CO was briefing on safety for the coming holiday when he was shot.
