TSO and one of my ninjas sent us this article about the tragic shooting of a young soldier in Killeen, TX outside the gate at Fort Hood. It seems that Pfc. Patrick Edward Myers tried to cure Pfc. Isaac Lawrence Young’s bout of hiccups by scaring him with a gun pointed at his face. Then he pulled the trigger and shot Young in the face and killed him.
Pfc. Patrick Edward Myers, 27, was charged on Tuesday with manslaughter, and Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin set his bond at $1 million, police said.
Myers forgot that training he got with the Army which said you don’t point your gun at anything you don’t intend to shoot.
