An Army nurse showed no alarm or discomfort before suddenly collapsing during a Skype video chat with his wife, who saw a bullet hole in a closet behind him, his family said Sunday.
Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark's family released a statement describing what his wife saw in the video feed recording her husband's death.
"Clark was suddenly knocked forward," the statement said. "The closet behind him had a bullet hole in it. The other individuals, including a member of the military, who rushed to the home of CPT Clark's wife also saw the hole and agreed it was a bullet hole."

Flashback: (Ministry shooter had silencer on pistol)
NY Times ^ | 2/26/12 | GRAHAM BOWLEY and ALISSA J. RUBIN
A few details of the killing within the Interior Ministry were emerging, although many reports offered conflicting views of what had happened. According to three Afghan security officials familiar with the case, the main suspect was Abdul Saboor, who was said to have worked in the ministry for more than a year as a driver. The two American officers who were killed were shot in the head and the pistol used to kill them was equipped with a silencer, the officials said.

It is also a scene from real life. We had a killing here a year ago, a 19 year old woman was shot in her chest while in her kitchen. The bullet came from gang bangers shooting at each other.
Afghanistan is every bit as much a war zone as our cities
He was in Afghanistan in a Skype room and gets shot... and nobody would have noticed had the wife not scrambled to try to get him help. Weird! I thought these links were monitored.
I meant the scene that she saw. Someone slumping forward and a bullet hole in the wall behind them.
Maybe with the wimpy Obama rules of engagement it is. I thought the cities were worse.
Afghan Officer Abdul Saboor Salangi Accused of Shooting 2 Americans in Back of the Head
The two officers, reported to be a colonel and a major, were found dead in a room inside the interior ministry that was used only by foreigners and secured with combination locks. They had been shot in the back of the head.
Afghanistan is safer.

Am I getting two stories confused? I thought an earlier similar story was declared it was non combat?
Yep, here’s an earlier article saying non combat related:
and obama will send his apolgies to whom????
And burn any Bibles that may have been in the room.
“Non-combat related” according to Obama means a muzzie on the base shot him in the back of a head with a silencer-equipped pistol.
Muzzie hiding in closet.
This is really bizarre. I wonder if we will ever know what happened.
