This is Peculiar

There was a shooting this morning aboard USS Mahan.

A civilian approached the ship's quarterdeck and was confronted by ship security. A struggle ensued, and the civilian disarmed the petty officer of the watch. The suspect used that gun to fatally shoot a sailor who responded to help.

Naval security forces then killed the suspect, who did not have his own weapon, Davis said.


 


Having been on that base many times, in both a civilian and active duty capacity, the question that jumps out is not how but why.
