Soldier killed in Washington State.

Post  fshnski on Mon Oct 07, 2013 10:13 am

Police in Washington state are investigating a possible hate crime after a 20-year-old active-duty soldier was stabbed to death in a parking lot Saturday morning.

Three soldiers were walking from Joint Base Lewis-McChord when a vehicle carrying a group of men passed them and one man shouted a racial slur from the car, a local television station reported.

“One of the soldiers yelled back something about the suspects treating combat soldiers with disrespect,” said Lakewood, Wash., police Lt. Chris Lawler.

The vehicle turned around and five black men jumped out, the report said. The driver realized the men were actually combat veterans and called his friends off, but one man in a blue hoodie stabbed the victim before retreating, according to witnesses.
