Pentagon: Three Military Members Injured in Colorado Shooting; Sailor Unaccounted For

UPDATE (7/21): Two miltary members have been reported dead, according to reports from CNN and Bloomberg News. Air Force Staff Sergeant Jesse Childress, 29, a cyber systems operator, and Navy Petty Officer Third Class John Larimer, 27, a cryptologic technician, both died due to the shooting. Both had been assigned to Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colo., Bloomberg reports.


One sailor remains unaccounted for following a shooting at a Colorado movie theater that left 12 dead and dozens more wounded Friday morning, according to a Pentagon statement. A second sailor and two airmen were injured in the shooting, but the extent of their injuries remains unknown.

 

Earlier, The Associated Press reported that “some members of the military were either killed or wounded,” according to a Pentagon spokesman.

The Air Force Times reported that service members from Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado were among the injured, but did not say how many or the extent of their injuries.

“This tragic event has affected everybody here at Buckley Air Force Base and our local community friends and neighbors,” base commander Col. Daniel Dant said in a statement to the Air Force Times. “We are deeply saddened by the loss of each and every loved one.”
