An active shooter emergency at a Maryland business park near Fort Detrick on Tuesday morning left two male U.S. Navy sailors wounded, with one still considered critical hours later, and the suspect, a Navy Hospital Corpsman, dead, officials said.

Officials on Tuesday afternoon identified the suspect as 38-year-old Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet, a Petty Officer Third Class assigned to Fort Detrick who lived off-base in Frederick.

Woldesenbet allegedly began shooting with a rifle inside a Navy-related business at the Riverside Tech Park, causing people inside to flee, Frederick police and Fort Detrick officials said at a news conference. Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando said detectives are still trying to determine a possible motive.

Lando called the shootings “very tragic.”

Another meltdown with a gun, again proving the uselessness of Maryland’s draconian firearms laws. Read the entire article here: Fox News

That is some alphabet BINGO.


Claw will sort it out.

I just won a five dollar bet with my wife, despite the spelling of his last name.

Too bad we don’t get to pay many hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to try and house him for the rest of life. Then the mind readers could examine him and find out what motivated him to start shooting random people.


Bet her another five that it’s Ethiopian or Somalian.


Just found this:

Dr. Elleni Woldesenbet, MD is a Infectious Disease Specialist in Arlington, TX and has over 30 years of experience in the medical field. She graduated from ADDIS ABABA University Faculty of Medicine medical school in 1991.



Probably the most occurring crossword puzzle answer ever.


This will be memory-holed like the other “inconvenient” leftist/Islamic/idiot (triple redundancy?) murderers.

AND we hear D-rat pools calling for more Gun Control in 3, 2,…


Nope…more likely you won’t hear much of anything because once again the shooter’s a tad swarthy to fit their racist, white supremacist narrative.

POC shooter’s don’t count…


Prayers offered up for the quick recovery his victims. Prayers of Thanks offered up for his quick descent to Hell.

If Maryland could just pass some common sense gun control laws.


Yes, like those laws in Shotcago that are preventing all gun crime there.


Amen and Amen, KoB.

Praying for a full recovery for those injured, and thankful that the attempted murderer sent himself to his eternal reward without harming more.


It’s personal. A maniac that old w/ a weapon and military training could do much more damage if he wasn’t so choosy.


well, he was a navy corpsman… my brother was a bubblehead about 15 years ago, and he said that in basic, about the firearms instruction he got wasn’t much more than the teacher from South Park saying “Guns are bad ummkay?”…

With all do respect to my swabbie brethren with actual combat training..


MAJ Hasan (also medical) just went spray-‘n-pray at Fort Hood and jacked-up a lot more people, just sayin’.


No doubt, any fool with a firearm in a target rich environment can cause a lot of havoc, especially when those targets are unarmed.. Just guessing that he probably didn’t have much military training when it comes to firearms is all.


This DRT dirtbag was active duty for 8.5 years and he was only an E-4, as he enlisted in September 2012. It only took him five years to make E-4. Impressive. Based on that pic of him on the link above he musta had one of those beard profiles that enlisted Black males have cornered the market on.

Since we haven’t seen any photos of the evil black rifle, he must have used some other long gun.


Wow! Before I retired last year, I lived about 3 miles from Fort Detrick. Used it as my medical clinic. I never would have thought that sleepy old Frederick would have to suffer through this.

How much you want to bet, it was a crime of opportunity? This guy works at the clinic, hears these two say some thing about Islam, happens to have a rifle in his car. Goes and gets it, but has to shoot farther than he has the rifle sighted in for…only wounding them. (Ok, maybe that is sort of pre-meditated!)


It meets the legal definition for premeditated murder.
