The local angle in the Fort Hood shootings has emerged.
The Kansas City Star reports that Army Reserve Spc. Keara Bono (Torkelson) was one of those shot in the assault on Thursday. She’s a graduate of a high school in Independence, MO., but she recently married and lives in the St. Paul area, according to the newspaper.
Here’s her Facebook page. A posting on her wall there says she was treated and released.
Just a few hours before the shootings, she posted that life at the facility was “boring.”
Says the London Evening Standard:
Another of the injured, 21-year-old Private Keara Bono, called her husband to say: “They shot me. And I’m still here in this country.” He heard shots and shouting, before the line went dead.
