Saudi Student Open Fired in Classroom

Four people are dead, including the suspected gunman, after a man authorities identified as a Saudi aviation student open fired in a classroom at the Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday morning.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) confirmed the suspect was a member of the Saudi military at a news conference Friday afternoon outside the military base.

“There’s obviously going to be a lot of questions about this individual being a foreign national, being a part of the Saudi Air Force and then to be here training on our soil and to do this,” he said.

DeSantis said he spoke with President Trump about the shooting and emphasized that Riyadh would eventually need to respond.

“Obviously, the government of Saudi Arabia needs to make things better for these victims. I think they’re going to owe a debt here given that this was one of their individuals,” he said.
