Pearl Harbor shooter was from San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A sailor who shot and killed two people before taking his own life at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard last week was from San Antonio.

Twenty-two-year-old Gabriel Romero was supposed to be providing security for the USS Columbia, which is at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for maintenance December 4. He used his service rifle to kill two Department of Defense civilians and wounded a third man before turning his service pistol on himself.

Reports indicate that Romero was unhappy with his commanders and had been undergoing counseling.
