HONOLULU (AP) - The Army has confirmed the identity of a Schofield Barracks soldier who was shot and killed by police in Waikiki earlier this week.
The Army's 25th Infantry Division says the soldier was 22-year-old Pfc. Gregory M. Gordon from Ashford, Ala.
Police say Gordon was shot early Tuesday after repeatedly ramming multiple police cars with his truck. Several police officers were injured in the incident.
The Army said in a release Thursday that Gordon joined the Army in April 2010 and attended basic training at Fort Knox, Ky. He was deployed with his unit to Afghanistan in April 2011 and returned about a year ago. He served as a fire support specialist. Gordon received numerous medals, including the Afghanistan Campaign Medal with Campaign Star.
