Air Force named airmen killed by Frankfurt gunman

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON �?? The Air Force says that the two airmen killed March 2 at a German airport were from South Carolina and Virginia.

The Air Force identified the victims as 25-year-old Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden of Williamston, S.C., and Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback of Stanardsville, Va.

Alden was assigned to the 48th Security Forces Squadron at RAF Lakenheath in England. Cuddeback was assigned to the 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

German officials say a 21-year-old temporary letter sorter has admitted targeting Americans when he opened fire with a handgun on a busload of U.S. airmen at Frankfurt�??s airport, killing two and wounding two others. The airmen were on their way to deployment in Afghanistan.

From Air Force Magazine:

UPDATED: Airmen Killed in Shooting Attack in Germany: A gunman killed two airmen and wounded two additional airmen in a shooting Wednesday at Frankfurt International Airport in Frankfurt, Germany. One of the airmen killed was a vehicle operator stationed at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, while the other airman who died was a member of a security forces team at RAF Lakenheath, England, US Air Forces in Europe officials announced Thursday. One of the wounded airmen is in critical condition in a German hospital in Frankfurt, while the other is in serious condition, they said. The shooting occurred on an Air Force bus that was outside an airport terminal to transport a 15-member security forces team from the airport to Ramstein. The team was on its way to Afghanistan for a deployment. German authorities have the shooter in custody. The Air Force was withholding the release of the airmen's names pending notification of kin. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those impacted by this senseless act of violence," said Air Force Secretary Michael Donley.
