2 active-duty soldiers die in shooting

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say two active-duty soldiers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord have died in a shooting. The News Tribune reports the woman and man were identified Monday as 19-year-old Ashley Hernandez and 23-year-old Damien Martinez. Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock says information about where they were from wasn’t immediately available. About 5 a.m. Sunday, police say deputies were called to an apartment after a man said his girlfriend had shot herself. The sheriff’s office says deputies found him dead from a gunshot wound and the woman died later at a hospital. Investigators are working to determine whether the incident was a murder-suicide or a double suicide.
