Unfortunately, Red, that’s the long and short of it. Even Navy sailors are targets when they’re all disarmed by orders. “Security Forces” are at best minutes away when seconds count.
Odds are this will involve romance gone bad.
Snuck aboard for a ‘conjugal’ visit?
Good thing ‘we’ can’t blame the Marines for allowing a ‘gun’ aboard - not only the base but a ship.
If shooting aboard ship why was Security Force involved? (OR do they call the base MAA and Marine Personnel aboard the base and ships ‘Security Force’?
I hear Security Force and I ‘picture’ the normal cadre of Civilian Security Police that man(oops woman) most gates.
A lot of information about nothing. Now everyone with someone at Norfolk has increased anxiety.
Ships have watches on board and on the pier that are armed, either with Baretta or M-16. Most likely that was the “security forces” that got the shooter.
Is it true that numerous Aircraft Carriers are now docked in Norfolk, lined up like “ducks-in-a-row”?
My first thought. Will we ever know?
A lovers spat in the new Gay Navy???
“A sailor was shot and killed at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia and security forces killed the male civilian suspect...”
Homosexual ‘love’ spat gone bad...?
just like December 7, 1941??
So the shooter been identified as an Amish Jihadi yet?
“So the shooter been identified as an Amish Jihadi yet?”
Or, one of odumbo’s son’s acting “stupidly?” (i.e. travon and white hispanic zimmerman).
Or, maybe the shooter was heard shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
All there on at the instruction of Obama ?
The headline says "sailor gunned down." Right under that it says "soldier."
Just more proof that the MSM has no idea what they’re talking about.
GAY free zones
What do we have here? Another “MALE” suspect, being gunned down in a Naval Base, right after he has killed another sailor. How can that be? Weren’t we promised that if we took the guns away, we wouldn’t have any more shootings?
As a certain JB once said, “Some people claim there’s a woman to blame.”
The Navy has a gang problem so could be related to gang activity.

I’d bet a reporter wrote the story and an editor wrote the title => sloppy.
If that video doesn’t piss off the Muslims and make them want to kill, then nothing will!
If it is a gay lover thing, it never happened.
During my time in the Air Force, I had heard of at least four male on male rapes... usually a drunken, or ethered(sp?) airman awakening to their roommate smoking their pole. One of my trainees was a victim of such an attack. His career was ruined because he beat the crap out of the rapist the next day in front of too many witnesses.
While I was in the Marine Corps, I knew of two incidents of male-on-male rape.
Once while in Okinawa - just as you described - drunk Marine awakes to his roommate smoking his pole. He started beating the shit outta him and it two or three other Marines to save the smoker’s life!
The other was in Camp Lejeune. We had three-man rooms at our barracks and the three roomies went drinking, one passed out and the other two decided to hold him down and sodomize him. His screaming brought the three roomies from the adjoining head into the room, at which point all four of them kicked the ever-loving-shit outta the two offenders.
In both cases, a quick ass-kicking response left the offenders bloodied and bruised which included a side trip to the hospital on the way to the brig! In neither case were the responses admonished (as it should be)!
I was also thinking its prolly a domestic.
Killed the alleged suspect?
Hope they got the right guy.
Hope they got the right guy.
Pretty sure they did; guy took a security guard's handgun and shot the sailor, then other security guards shot him.
I think most of these attacks are not even reported. The victims really don’t want to deal with the embarrassment of having the event exposed.
All but one of those lined-up carriers was in various states of de-activation or overhaul. The Enterprise was one-—decommissioned some time ago. There’s another row just like that at Puget Sound NS. All being retired- and disassembled. It’s notable that we have a larger fleet of de-activated carriers than the rest of the world has working ones. And if push came to shove the process could be reversed in days. The real question for a dumbass enemy is wheretheflock are the working ones?
The sailor and the civilian assailant were shot on board the USS Mahan, an AEGIS guided missile detroyer berthed there.
How the hell did an armed civie get onboard that vessel?
Security watch must have got the perp...but him getting aboard is going to be a key part of the NCIS investigation.
NORFOLK, Va. A civilian was shot and killed by security officers Monday night after disarming a petty officer standing watch on the destroyer Mahan and shooting a sailor who rushed to help.
Navy officials said the man approached the Mahan's quarterdeck and was confronted by the ship's security personnel. During a struggle, he took a gun from the petty officer on watch and shot another sailor. Navy security forces then shot the man, who they said was not carrying his own weapon.
The incident occurred about 11:20 p.m. on Pier 1, according to Navy spokeswoman Terri Davis. No other injuries were reported.
The civilian was authorized to be on the base, but Davis could not provide additional details.
It's not clear whether he was authorized to be on Pier 1 or the Mahan. The Navy generally keeps check points at pier and ship entrances as well as at base gates.
The sailor who died was described only as a male. Navy officials expect to release his identity after his relatives have been contacted.
Admiral Bill Gortney, the head of Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk, opened an energy workshop on base this morning with a moment of silence "for our shipmate." He added: "We will find out what happened and we will prevent that from happening again."
The base was put on lockdown for about 45 minutes after the shooting as a precaution. Officers, chiefs and duty section personnel should report to the Mahan this morning, but non-duty section enlisted personnel were being told not to report, according to a release from Davis. Counselors were called in from the Fleet and Family Support Center.
So the guy appraoched thee watch, struggled with and disarmed the PO on watch, and then shot and killed a sailor rushing to his aid. I hope they quickly decipher why that guy tried to baord a US Navy vessel unarmed, disarmed the watch, and then killed by others on watch.
Curiouser and curiouser it gets.
Always have been.
Out of 11 active carriers, only 3 are deployed at the present time.
Couldn't watch it!
Just ask the bar girls.
fwiw...some are now saying the sentry aboard the ship, from who the civilian perp wrestled the weapon used in the shooting of the sailor......was female..."to blame"?..who knows...just sayin...
Probably, I’ll never be subdued by a woman, she would have to cap me.
