** Texas man arrested after allegedly shooting, killing former combat medic brother

** Indiana residents to pay tribute to US Navy medic killed in plane crash


** A former Texas combat medic from The Colony is dead after allegedly being shot Sunday by his own brother. That is the word from CBSDFW (July 25) which said Chandler Davis, 34,  was apparently gunned down by John Davis III, 38, after a fight over a firearm. According to the news station, family members told police the incident started after Chandler accused John of stealing a gun from him. When John began recording the argument on his phone, Chandler grabbed it and John fired on him. John, who is being held in jail on a $100,000 bond, said he took action after believing his life was in danger. There is no word on his next court date. Funeral services for Chandler, meanwhile, are pending.

** Indiana residents in Middletown plan to line the highway leading into town Thursday to pay tribute to a fallen US Navy medic who died July 10th in a military plane crash in Mississippi. The Herald Bulletin (Christopher Stevens/July 22) said the body of HMI Ryan Lohrey, 30, will arrive at Indianapolis International Airport around 7 p.m. bound for New Castle’s Sproles Family Funeral Home. According to the newspaper, Lohrey perished alongside 15 other servicemen when his refueling plane went down in the Mississippi Delta. A football player and graduate from Shenandoah High School in 2005, Lohrey served two tours in the Middle East. He served with the special units known as MARSOC Raiders and Marines Recon. He was the recipient of a Purple Heart, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and a Combat Action Ribbon with gold star. Lohrey married on July 3rd. He leaves two children behind.
