This is heart breaking.
To fight for your country and survive three tours of duty, and then be killed in your own neighborhood. Senseless.
LANCASTER (CBS) — A 30-year-old veteran who served three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan was shot to death Saturday in Lancaster, sheriff’s officials said.
Nathen Taylor’s family is grieving and in disbelief.
The shooting in the 700 block of West Avenue H-7 occurred around 12:10 a.m., said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.
Taylor, according to his brother Patrick, had just left a party because he didn’t like to be around a lot of drinking. Taylor called his brother to say he would be dropping by his house within a few minutes.
Taylor was sitting alone in his car, cell phone in hand, when he was shot by an unknown assailant.
