A sailor recently died after saving lives amid the mass shooting in Pensacola.
KAMI learned that the sailor was a Christian who just recently rededicated his life to Christ.
In a report by the God TV (authored by Rhoda Gayle), the mass shooting happened last December 6 at approximately 6:30 AM.
An armed man fired shots inside a classroom in Naval Air Station. The attacker was identified as Mohammed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force.
It has been reported that three sailors were killed and about eight others were injured. Alshamrani was also killed by a sheriff’s deputy.
Among the sailors killed was Airman Mohammad Sameh Haitham who spent the last moments of his life saving other people. The 19-year-old recently rededicated his life to Christ and church.
According to his coach, Anthony Snead, Sameh wanted to make a difference in the world.
“He didn’t want to be somebody who was going to the coast,” Snead said.
“He wanted to be someone who was going to be a positive influence. And he worked like it,” he added.
NAS Pensacola commanding officer Capt. Tim Kinsella said that they grieve the loss of the sailors who dedicated their lives to save other people.
“When confronted, they didn’t run from danger; they ran towards it and saved lives. If not for their actions, and the actions of the Naval Security Force that were the first responders on the scene, this incident could have been far worse,” he said.
