Such needless violence!
Two service members were allegedly shot and wounded this afternoon in a fight that occurred at a Tennessee National Guard Office outside Memphis.
Reportedly, one guard member shot two others following an argument — leaving one wounded in the leg and the other in the foot.
The office rests on property owned by the Navy, which is leased by the Guard. The Navy has personnel and recruiting commands at an adjacent facility in Millington, Tennessee.
According to Navy Mass Communications Spc. 1st Class William Jamieson, the suspect is in police custody, and the victims have been rushed to hospitals. According to reports, they are in non-critical condition.
The suspect has yet to be identified to the public yet, however there are reports that a Navy recruiter had been relieved of duty today and was taken into custody, which could narrow speculation down for those familiar with the base's personnel.
After the shooting, the Navy facility was placed on lockdown, which has since been lifted. We just hope both wounded parties recover quickly.
