Airman dies at Shaw Air Force Base

SUMTER, SC (WOLO) — Officials at Shaw air force base say an airman died yesterday.
At this point, officials are not sharing much information surrounding the death including what may had led to it, but are asking the community to pull together during this difficult time,  and be kind to one another.

While the Air Force Base has not had much to say, we did find this post from 20th FW commander Colonel Derek O’Malley saying, “Here we are again, I can’t believe it”

This is the 5th death reported by the Base so far this year. Stay with ABC Columbia News for updates on air and online.
