Shooter IDed as Tech. Sgt. Steven D. Bellino, 41. Victim is Lt. Col. William A. Schroeder, 39.
What’s weird is the background of Bellino. He had been in the Air Force less than a year, but was already an E-7. And before that he was a Special Agent in the FBI for about two years.
Was Bellino booted from the FBI for some reason? Being a Special Agent is a respected and sought-after position, and usually applicants are college grads with degrees in accounting or law. And these federal agencies are loath to lose people so early after having spent all that money training them.
Would a man with such a background then enlist in the services? Why would the Air Force accept a 40-year old enlistee?
Was Bellino in fact an undercover agent doing an investigation at the time? I suspect there is more to this story.
