HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- The father of a military policeman from Maryland says his son was the victim killed when a civilian approached a destroyer docked at Naval Station Norfolk and disarmed a sailor on watch.
Decondi Mayo says a Navy representative told him Tuesday that his son Mark Mayo had been killed. The Navy has not released that information.
Decondi Mayo spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday outside a Hagerstown home.
Mark Mayo's mother, Sharon Blair, tells The Herald-Mail newspaper her son spent his adolescence in the home and was 24 when he was killed in the Monday shooting.
Navy officials say a civilian approached USS Mahan, disarmed a sailor and shot another who came to help. They haven't identified the civilian.
Blair tells the paper Mayo had been a military policeman since completing special forces training in 2008 and patrolled the base.
