Airman Killed In Shooting Named

The US Air Force has named a Suffolk-based airman who was one of two servicemen shot and killed as they arrived at a German airport.

The victims of the shooting were 25-year-old Senior Airman Nicholas Alden from South Carolina, and Airman 1st Class Zachary Cuddeback from Virginia.

German authorities said a 21-year-old temporary letter sorter had admitted targeting Americans when he opened fire with a handgun on a busload of Lakenheath airmen at Frankfurt International Airport on Wednesday, killing two and wounding two others. The airmen were on their way to deployment in Afghanistan.

Senior Airman Alden was assigned to the 48th Security Forces Squadron at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk and Airman Cuddeback, who was driving the bus, was with the 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.
