One of the two U.S. airmen fatally shot at the Frankfurt, Germany airport Wednesday is from Anderson County.
Nick Alden, 24, lived in Williamston, South Carolina before enlisting in the U.S. Air Force four years ago. His mother, Cathy Garner, teaches English at Starr-Iva Middle School.
A gunman opened fire Wednesday on a bus carrying 10 U.S. serviceman at the airport. A German security official said the suspect has confessed to targeting American military members. He also said investigators are determining if the attack could be considered a possible act of Islamic terrorism.
Alden leaves behind a wife, a three-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son.
