Ahmed Mohammed al-Shamrani was training on the Naval Air Station Pensacola when he used a handgun to open fire in a classroom at dawn Friday, stunning the military community two days after a sailor at a Pearl Harbor naval base killed two people and injured a third before turning his gun on himself.
“I think there’s going to be a lot of questions about this individual being a foreign national, a part of the Saudi Air Force and then to be here training on our soil and to do this,” said Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, reports the Pensacola News Journal.
“This has been a devastating week for our @USNavy family,” wrote U.S. Chief of Naval Operations Michael Gilday on Twitter. “Our hearts break for those who lost their lives in Pensacola and the wrenching pain it causes their loved ones. When tragedy hits, as it did today, and Wednesday in Pearl Harbor, it is felt by all.”
