OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE — Military authorities have charged a Marine who authorities say had firearms, a silencer, body armor and ammunition in his pickup when he tried to enter Offutt Air Force Base.
Pfc. Ali Al-Kazahg is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, communicating threats and other crimes. A Marine Corps spokesman says the 22-year-old Al-Kazahg is in custody in Hawaii, where he's assigned to the 3rd Marine Logistics Group.
Authorities say Al-Kazahg was on leave when he was stopped at an Offutt Air Force Base gate May 31. Guards had spotted his name on a law enforcement notice of people considered to be capable of doing harm. The notice says he told another Marine that he would "shoot up" his battalion if he were disciplined for certain misconduct.
