A US Army Soldier from Joint Base Lewis McChord in Washington state was reported killed in a deadly shooting at a party.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the incident, which took place in Parkland.
JBLM confirmed the victim as Sgt. Emmett Leviticus Moore, a native of East Point, Georgia.
It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Sgt. Moore,” said Lt. Col. John C. Tisserand, the 1-14 CAV battalion commander, in a statement. “This is an extremely difficult time for the Warhorse family. Our primary mission now is taking care of the family members of our fallen soldier,” he said.
According to KIRO, locals near the shooting did not recognize the sound of gunfire right away.
“We were having a barbecue, then we heard like three or four (shots), which we thought were fireworks. Then, all the cops came,” said Sandra Kinney, a Parkland resident.
Detectives are currently attempting to determine the motive for the shooting.
