FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina-based firm says it employed the three military contractors who were shot to death earlier this week in Afghanistan.
Praetorian Standard Inc. of Fayetteville identified the men slain Thursday as Walter D. Fisher of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Jason D. Landphair of Fayetteville, North Carolina; and Mathew E. Fineran of Summerville, South Carolina.
The release issued Saturday by Thomas Lujan, an attorney for the company, says another employee, Bradley A. James of Atlanta, was wounded but expected to survive.
The company says it’s meeting with the men’s families.
The Pentagon has said the three aircraft mechanics working as Defense Department contractors were killed at the Kabul airport by a man in an Afghan uniform. The gunman was killed at the scene.
