Gunman Attacks Army Station

Two soldiers trained for combat, and dressed in fatigues, encountered violence where they least expected it on Sunday: in a shopping mall in Little Rock, Arkansas. A Muslim convert shot two soldiers--killing one--outside an Army Navy recruiting station. The shooter is a 24-year-old Little Rock-native named Carlos Bledsoe, who goes by Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad. Though he had never been in the military, he appeared to be upset with it. A 24-year-old solider named William Long died in the fire, and an 18-year-old, Quinton Ezeagwula, was critically wounded. Both were visiting Little Rock for two weeks to talk to locals about joining the military.
