It was reported a little while ago that there was a shooting involving a National Guardsman at the southern border and the incident commanded a large police presence.
Now we are learning that the National Guardsman shot himself in the head and committed suicide.
Via Fox News:
A member of the Texas National Guard reportedly died by suicide at the southern border on Tuesday.
Multiple law enforcement sources confirm to Fox News that a Texas National Guardsman on a post in Eagle Pass died Tuesday morning.
The guardsman died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Fox News Digital has reached out to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s office and the Texas Military Department for added comment but did not immediately receive responses.
Fox News’ Griff Jenkins initially reported on air about receiving a call from an orchard farm owner in Eagle Pass on Tuesday informing him of a shooting involving the National Guard member.
Sources later confirmed to Fox News the shooting is believed to have been self-inflicted.
I have no more information on what happened but I really hate to hear the news.
I could make a bunch of assumptions about it and politicize it, as I’m sure some will do, but for all we know this had nothing to do with the border at all.
Just pray for the National Guardsman who committed suicide because I’m sure his soul could use our prayers right now.
