US Soldiers Shot and killed in Germany? Has anyone heard updates?

 

Two US soldiers have been killed in a shooting at Frankfurt airport, Sky sources have said.

Two other people are said to have been injured in the incident and police have reportedly arrested a 21-year-old suspect from Kosovo.

The shots were fired on or near a bus carrying soldiers, according to reports.

It happened in front of terminal 2 of the airport, which is Europe's second-biggest, a spokesman at the airport said.

  • Holy cow! My dh flew through there on his way to Afghanistan and will probably fly through on his way home. This is terrible. I pray for the families.

  • I'm praying for the families and their squadron. My son has flown through there each time he's been deployed ~ just one more thing to worry about.
