For the fifth time since May, Shaw Air Force Base is mourning the death of one of its airmen. The most recent death is the third suicide, the Sumter County Coroner's Office confirmed Thursday.
"We lost another airman yesterday. Here we are again. I can't believe it," Col. Derek O'Malley, 20th Fighter Wing commander, said on a Facebook post. "... We lost another one of our own."
A military plane crashed in North Carolina on Monday, according to the Marine Corps.
The pilot safely ejected before the crash in Craven County, and no deaths have been reported, according to a Facebook post from the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing.
