San Diego (AP) — The man armed with a knife shot and killed at the entrance to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego last month was a resident of Boston working at the base, officials said Wednesday.
On November 26, guards shot and killed Travers Spargo King, 36.
At the time, officials said the man drove to the entrance, ignored some orders to stop, and eventually got off the SUV and approached the checkpoint kiosk with a knife and “hostility.” ..
According to officials, he ignored some warnings from the guards before he was shot dead on the scene.
According to a statement from the base, King was a civilian who worked as an air conditioning engineer at the depot from March to November and previously served for the United States Coast Guard.
However, authorities did not say whether he was still employed in the warehouse at the time he died.
Authorities have not provided other details of the conflict. The shooting remains under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
The Marine Corps Recruit Training Center, which trains recruits primarily from the west of the Mississippi River, handles tens of thousands of recruits each year.
