Nearby neighbors were shocked. Shatwana Ross said, “This is the place where our kids play and run. Luckily, they were in school when this happened because that’s normally where they’re at.” Another neighbor, Orie Blue said, “I heard boom! And I just took off running and didn’t look back.” In May, a 173rd Airborne Brigade soldier, Sgt. John Skipper, was found guilty after he sabotaged a military training exercise in 2016, allowing three Humvees to fall from a plane, Stars and Stripes reported. The incident was captured on video and went viral but was shameful to the Army. The jury found Skipper guilty of purposely cutting the parachute straps on three Humvees, allowing them to eject from the plane and fall.
