US Soldier Killed at Arkansas Recruiting Center Drive-By Shooting
What appears to be a drive-by shooting took the life of a U.S. soldier at a recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas. Another soldier was wounded in the shooting.
Little Rock police arrived at the Army/Navy Career Center to find two soldiers had been shot. The soldiers were part of a recruiting program that had soldiers talk about their experiences to possible recruits.
Police have arrested Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad in connection with the shooting. He has been charged first-degree murder and 15 counts of engaging in a terrorist act for shooting at an occupied building. Military officials believe that Muhammad may have been targeting soldiers.
The slain soldier has been identified as Pvt. William Long and the wounded soldier is Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula.
The FBI is looking into the incident to see if there is any federal jurisdiction to prosecute.
