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 a naval base and disarmed a sailor on watch.

Decondi Mayo says a Navy representative told him Tuesday that his son Mark Mayo had been killed.

Decondi Mayo spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday outside a Hagerstown home.

Mark Mayo’s mother, Sharon Blair, tells The Herald-Mail newspaper (http://bit.ly/1fhiiSs) her son spent his adolescence in the home and was 24 when he was killed in the Monday shooting at the Norfolk, Va., base.

Navy officials say a civilian approached the 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.

Or it can reject aid, retain its private beach and allow erosion and other issues to worsen. (AP Photo/Emily Dooley)
