    Arrest Made in Shooting Near Walter Reed
    June 20, 2007 - 2:11pm

    WASHINGTON - An arrest has been made after bullets sprayed the grounds of Walter Reed Army Medical Center Wednesday in Northwest.

    D.C. Police say two contract security guards at Walter Reed got into an argument around 8:30 a.m.

    "One of the security guards tried to walk away, the other security person basically pulled his weapon and fired approximately 10 rounds at his co-worker," says D.C. Police Lieutenant Jimmy Reilly.

    Nobody was hit or hurt, and an arrest has been made. Police did recover bullets from cars parked nearby.

    Sources say police do have security video of the shooting.

    let me get this straight a guy is walking away form you so close quarters possibly with his back to you and you can't hit him or anyone else with 10 shots?

    and what kind of gun only has 10 shots.

    maybe he just wanted to scare him..

    and those poor fuckin soldiers at walter reed...you know there were some who were sleeping, and some who have post traumatic stress, and then they hear shots ring out and you know some of them momentarily forgot where they were.

    I probably would have at the least got a serious adrenalin rush. more likely shit my pants.

    In my experience, most security guards are wannabee cops who have washed out on the psych/physical prescreens at the academy.
    I give security guards and gun store employees a wiiiide berth.

    Not to mention that a lot of security guards have criminal records.

    I have a buddy that owns a gun shop. His parents wanted him to be a doctor or something but he always just wanted to work on guns since he was a little kid. He's busy as heck, too. 3-5 week backlog in repair orders. He's not :nuts: or anything, just likes guns like us.

    Also - the mil surplus store here in town is staffed by old retired military dudes. They're funny. :)
