Lawyer: Unit member's injury upset Afghan suspectLawyer: Soldier accused in Afghan shooting was upset by grave injury to unit member
SEATTLE (AP) ' The Seattle lawyer representing the U.S. soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians says the soldier had been very upset that somebody in his unit had been "gravely injured."
John Henry Browne spoke Thursday evening at a news conference in Seattle. He says the incident that troubled the suspect happened the day before he is accused of going on a shooting rampage.
Browne says the soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, had no prior events in his Army dossier indicating misbehavior.
