Soldier Murdered in Little Rock Recruitment Office Shooting (Updated)

A soldier just out of basic was killed and another wounded outside an Army recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas. From the Associated Press:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) A new soldier helping to attract others to the military was shot and killed outside an Army recruiting office Monday and a second soldier was wounded, and a suspect was arrested, police said.
Police have not released the names of the victims or the suspect. Bomb specialists were called in to investigate suspicious packages in the suspect's vehicle.

Update: The suspect in the Little Rock recruitment office shooting that left one young soldier dead is 24 year old Carlos Leon Bledsoe, now known as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad since his conversion to the Religion of Peace.

He was under investigation by the FBI since returning from Yemen.

From the same source:

Private William Long, 23 was killed on the scene and Private Quinton Ezeagwula, 18 was wounded while taking a break outside the U.S. Army recruiting station where they both were working at the time.
Don't expect any banner headlines in the MSM.
