There are stories starting to come out about what happened yesterday at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland yesterday. The apparent murder-suicide could have been worse if not for the heroic fight of the 342nd Training Squadron commander Lt. Col. William "Bill" Schroeder who was murdered in the incident.A blog post that went up last night, that has since been pulled down, detailed some of the story. The Air Force is not confirming the details but from what we have heard about Lt. Col Schroeder, we don't doubt that he is a hero.Here are some of the details from My San Antonio:

Lackland Murder-Suicide

The Air Force squadron commander killed Friday in a murder-suicide at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland’s Medina Annex “went out swinging” after a confrontation in his office, sacrificing himself to save a non-commissioned officer, a veteran airman said.In a message on the social media Facebook, Chief Master Sgt. Matthew Nugent said that Lt. Col. William “Bill” Schroeder, commander of the 342nd Training Squadron, was killed in Forbes Hall by a “disgruntled” technical sergeant who was facing a disciplinary hearing.The building used to train airmen for such tasks as Tactical Air Control Parties, or TACPs, who call in close-air support for ground troops.The Air Force identified Schroeder and Technical Sgt. Steven D. Bellino, a 342nd Training Squadron student, as the two dead men, but did not release details about the murder-suicide.Read the further details at My San Antonio.
