Minnesota Marine Shot, Killed, in DC Barracks

Minnesota Marine Shot, Killed, in DC Barracks

Under investigation as an accidental shooting- but as far as just how this fatal accident which killed Riley Kuznia occurred even his mother doesn't have an answer.

His mother Markelle Kuznia says he was a typical Minnesotan. Along with several photos of her son, she expressed her appreciation for everyone's thoughts and prayers.

Through her tears, Kuznia said her son felt it was his duty to serve.

The Public Incident Report filed by the responding officer on Tuesday reveals that officials responded to the scene just after 5am in the morning after getting the call that a Marine had discharged his weapon and wounded Kuznia. Kuznia said the military has not provided her with details of her son's death. Kuznia graduated in 2017 from Tri-County High School in a class of roughly 15, according to District Superintendent Ryan Baron.

The post is located at 8th and I Street and is the oldest active post in the Marine Corps. "He said he wanted to give five years to his country", she said.

An investigation is being conducted into the shooting, but Marine Corps spokesman Master Gunnery Sergeant John Jackson told Stars and Stripes that the wound "was not self-inflicted".

Gertz said it will be up to the U.S. Attorney's office on whether or not to file charges in the case.

Democratic Minnesota Gov. -elect Tim Walz expressed his condolences Wednesday on Twitter, saying, "We are forever grateful for your service to our state and our country".

The Marine Corps has not officially identified Kuznia as the shooting victim.
