Navy SEAL killed in live combat training exercise

Special Warfare Operator Officer Shapoor Alexander Ghane, a Navy SEAL, suffered a single gun-shot wound during a live combat training exercise at a training facility.

Commander Mark Blackson with the DeSoto County Sheriff's Department was first to handle the case.

"Our position would be to see if there was anything criminal that was done. Based on our investigation we have done, we have not found anything that would indicate that," Blackson said.
The investigation is now being handled by the Navy.

A line of cars was parked outside the training facility as personnel from Special Warfare in San Diego were on site.

Public Affairs Officer Lt. Tommy Crosby said Ghane was wearing the proper attire and that they have suspended all training at this facility until the investigation is complete.
