USS George Washington Sailor Found Aboard Carrier Died from Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound, Say Local Officials

Recommended Posts

A sailor assigned to USS George Washington (CVN-73) died last week from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the carrier, USNI News has learned.

According to a determination from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner of Virginia, Master-at-Arms Seaman Recruit Xavier Hunter Mitchell-Sandor died from suicide by gunshot wound on April 15.

A spokeswoman from U.S. Fleet Forces Command would not confirm to USNI News any of the details from the medical examiner about the incident, citing several ongoing investigations into a string of suicides aboard the carrier. A spokesman for the Naval Criminal Investigation Service likewise would not confirm if Mitchell-Sandor was on duty or if the weapon in question belonged to the service, citing an ongoing investigation.
