Authorities say the shooter at the Marine Corps base camp is no longer active
A Marine fatally shot a fellow service member at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina Tuesday, the base said in a statement. The shooting occurred at around 5:30 p.m.
The gunman, a Marine standing guard at the bases main gate, discharged an M4 rifle, killing another guard.
Camp Lejeunes provost marshal said the shooting is not thought to be an act of terrorism and that the shooter is no longer active.

deliberate or accidental?
Y’know ... I REALLY want to know about these guys ... this is not normal.
Workplace violence. Surely there will be a dem fundraiser nearby in NC when Obama comes to drive by the memorial service.
What standards? Standards pretty much went out the window with the repeal of DADT
This will be just the reason Libs will use to not let our service men be armed on base!
What the hell does that mean?
With an M4???
Morale is at an all time low...low morale equals disciplinary problems, and suicides, for the weak of mind. This will not be fixed until such time as the DOD boots the women, and homosexuals out.
P.S. I love women, and I ain’t afraid of homos.
I wonder if the government is screwing with the minds of some of our most susceptible members. Experiments of some kind.
The shooter is no longer active? What the heck does that mean?
What kind of incidents?
You drive a Grob....ya need to put a /s after yer post.
The shooter was discharged....see what I did there? OK...dispatched. Six o’ one, half dozen o’ the other;-)
Nice. This woman made sure 21 years worth of Marines were properly paid and their records kept straight. But I guess there's no value in that, since a woman did it.
youre not the only one thinking that. ive heard other people asking the same thing.
No, no, no--We just have better information and reporting. The frequency hasn't increased at all!!
What kind of incidents?
Shootings at Norfolk, the Navy yard in DC, Ft. Hood, etc.
The incidents may not have a common denominator, but the frequency is more than I have seen in five years.
What about the Navy yard shooter who said he thought he was hearing things or the woman in DC who was killed in her car
and said she felt the government was tracking her?
I wouldn’t be at all surprised.
In reaction to this, in the future armed guards will probably not be issued ammunition.
Active Duty ping.
Something wicked is festering in the shadows. New investigation needs to be done, and NOT by the current powers.
“the shooter is no longer active”
Those damn reservists!
Hey. I came close to shooting an officer who ordered me to shoot prisooners. An unlawful order is not an order. Yes, there might be an odd circumstance where one moght be forced to do this, bt this was far from one of those circumstances.
The common denominator? Ft hood is the same as The Twin Towers, the Boston Marathon and ay other terrorist incident.
The DC shooting was the same as Sandy Hook and Columbine
Last week’s was the same as the Colorado movie theater - a guy in the army who was nuts from the get go and held back from promotions and under the care of a psychiatrist giving him psychotropic drugs that we are all supposed to keep pretending don’t have side effects that include murderous thoughts, feelings and tendencies.
You want to point the finger at the military? Lump these nuts in with Hasan who was from the word go a terrorist, you’d be wrong.
You do not know what happened at Lejuene. You want to put that in with Hasan?
You won’t be alone.
Every media pundit except for a couple of lone sane people like Dana Perino did last week, put it out how very dangerous it was to conflate these incidents, and untrue it is to do so.
You are overreacting.
He was discharged. Good grief the hip buzzphrases we have now...
Good question. I was wondering the same thing myself.
Get over your self, Sandy. I was a Fleet Marine for years, and got my sorry ass FAPed to a MCB unit...specifically MCB Camp Foster, Okinawa, Joint Forces Brig. I saw, and dealt with Marines running afoul of MCRs, MCOs, and the UCMJ. I’m not speaking of the prisoners, I’m speaking of the personnel.
The morale is so low in a “co-ed” unit, it is stinking pathetic. And it’s because there is women around. Like I said, I love women...so do a bunch of other male Marines....jealousy, envy, rivalry = zero unit cohesion.
No longer shooting people. Poor choice words within the context.
“Does it seem like these types of incidents are happening way more frequently than in the past?
By asking you to point out what types of incidents?
Seems normal to me.
The new buzzword amongst military bases stateside is the threat of an “Active Shooter”. It’s the threat of somebody just going around shooting people as an act of terrorism.
It appears any incident involving a firearm is now being described as an ‘active shooting’ incident.
Declaring he is no longer active, simply means the immediate threat has subsided.
The way it’s stated, he might be napping.
BS. The USMC, along with all other branches of service are currently meeting and exceeding enlistment and retention goals. Individuals with disciplinary problems are getting booted out.
This will not be fixed until such time as the DOD boots the women, and homosexuals out.
This isn't ever going to happen so people had better get used to it.
Works for me.
**This isn’t ever going to happen so people had better get used to it.**
Get back to us when women that are taking combat roles can actually pass the physical training standards AND do the work required of those roles.
This isn’t ever going to happen so people had better get used to it,
just to quote you again, because it is just as applicable.
There are no jobs to be had.
I know the derelicts are getting the six-six-and a kick, as should be.
How dare you tell me I better "get used to it". I will not ever accept homosexually as the norm. You, however....
If you want to serve, you'd better get used to it.
I have no patience for this "low morale" sniveling. If you can't hack it, GTFO. There's plenty of other people lined up to take your place.
As far as women and gays in the military go, it's never going to get repealed. Ever. Get used to it or go home. You don't have to like it. You don't have to enlist or re-enlist either. The Corps doesn't care either way. See my previous comment on enlistment and retention.
Morale is to blame?
For the Camp Lejuene shooter?
Wow, that’s a jump. He wanted all the women out of the Marine Corps? Was he a Marine?
The guy at Ft Hood wanted the women out of the army? Maj hasan didn’t want women and gays in?
Who else is there?
We can throw in the boston bombers, the DC shooter, they all wanted the gays and women out, by your reasoning.
Hey, Cat, I’m outta there! Embrace it, live it, love it. I ain’t gotta do it. To each his own, Pal.
Have you been under a rock?
Truly a sad thing to see.
Maybe if you served you might understand....I can tell from your post you can’t get the gist of my post.
Weird. Almost the same as what was posted online at WWAY TV in Wilmington, NC.
CAMP LEJEUNE, NC (WWAY) — A Camp Lejeune Marine standing guard at the base’s Main Gate is dead after he was shot by a bullet from another Marine’s rifle.
A news release from Camp Lejeune says at about 5:30 p.m., a Marine standing guard at the Main Gate discharged a M4 rifle. The shot hit and killed another Marine guard.
The Marine Corps has not yet released the name of the Marine who died as it tries to notify the Marine’s family.
According to the release, the Base Provost Marshal said the incident is being considered neither an act of terrorism nor an active shooter event.
The incident is currently under investigation by Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
I wasn’t in the military, but my father, husband and daughter were and our son-in-law is. We all thank you for your service.
Women are just as important as men in the military, but some can’t see that.
I ain’t seen a church in a coons age, but I pray to The Lord every night to save our troops from Sodom. I weep.
The only way to fix it is to start from scratch...bring all troops home, and give them to states Governors...militia. Quit the social experiment that is the DOD.
